1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic, and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
2. Add the ham hock or ham bone to the pot, along with the split peas and chicken or vegetable broth.
3. Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the peas are tender and the ham is falling off the bone.
4. Remove the ham hock or bone from the pot and shred any meat, discarding any fat and bones. Return the meat to the pot.
5. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
6. Serve the pea and ham soup hot, garnished with fresh parsley if desired.
