Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large, heavy skillet or deep heavy soup pot, add olive oil, heat and add 1 sliced garlic clove garlic (or more, to taste). Sauté on low to infuse oil with garlic flavor, do not burn or brown garlic, about 5 minutes.

  6. At this point add the cheese and continue to stir, adjusting salt & pepper.
  7. Turn off heat and toss in frozen peas, stir and allow to sit a few minutes.
  8. Add parsley and stir again.
  9. Serve with big salad and crusty bread.
