      ClareVH, Thank you so much, for this lovely recipe. I used some whipping creme I had on hand instead of milk, as well I used freeze dried dill. My impression of this recipe is that the dill added another dimension to the overall flavour. I served the creamed peas over fresh fettuccine with Ginger Me up Chicken! Low Fat Honey & Ginger Chicken Breasts. I will make this again using Shiitake mushrooms which we love. My DH the pea hater, unless they are picked that day from the garden and cooked said, "This one is a keeper"! This recipe goes into my beloved Holiday Collection recipe cookbook. Again thank you so much for sharing.

      Wow, Clare, was this ever a delicious veggie side dish! I doubled the recipe and made as directed, only I used dried dill (only 1 about 1/2 tsp for a doubled recipe). I served it for Sunday dinner with roast family just loved it! Thank you for sharing!...Kittencal:)

      Yum. Perfect description, Clare, there's "just enough" cream sauce to coat the peas, making this a relatively light but satisfying dish. I used edamame rather than peas and skim milk rather than half-and-half. This is going to be a regular at my house.
