I found this recipe online and it turned out pretty good. I have a fondness for fresh peas so I haven't tried it yet with frozen.

I have been making this recipe for about 15 years from a recipe in a Sunset cookbook I had. It is healthy and flavorful and a stable in my household. I follow the recipe exactly.
