Although I made this with store-bought tomatoes & the final dish was very nice, I look forward to making this again when I have home-grown! We both enjoyed these nicely flavorful peas, & another time I might just use caramelized onions! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag]
