Just had this dish with baked ham and it was a good choice. Very flexible ingredients allow for different tastes. I used frozen peas, steamed for 10 min. before adding to sauce, and leftover chopped onions.

This is a great way to dress up ordinary peas. I used frozen peas and red pearl onions. The sauce is simple & quick. It boosts the nutritional value of the meal as well as the flavour and appearance. It'll be good to use for peas alone or peas & carrots as well. Made for Photo Tag.
