- Prepare peas and carrots according to the package directions, adding the sugar.
- While peas and carrots cook, melt butter in a medium saucepan and then add flour, salt and pepper to form a roux. Cook for about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk over medium heat and bring to a boil. Boil for about 1 minute, stirring constantly, then add dill and cook until thickened and bubbly.
