Adapted from Paul Prudhomme's Louisiana Tastes. The good chef and I have a bit of a disagreement about how long to cook this after the sugar snap peas have been added. He says 12 minutes; I say 5. The important thing is to keep them crunchy. Yes, you can substitute milk for the cream. It will not taste as rich, but it will still taste good. Freshly grated cheese is preferred.
