This was an excellent side dish. I was really quite an elegant looking dish, despite the ease of preparation and the simplicity of the ingredients. This went over very well as part of our Christmas meal. It was very attractive and tasted great. Thanks!

You know, the simple dishes are probably the most flavorable. I loved this recipe because the flavors all worked together, was a beautiful dish. I really liked the simplicity of the peas and pimentos and onions. Next time I make this, I will experiment (sorry Aunt Marie) with maybe, red onion, but you is terrific just like it is!!
