This was good, however next time I think I will add brown sugar instead of honey (personal preference). I planted pea pods the first time this year so am having fun trying new recipes. Thanks for sharing.

This was an easy and appetizing recipe. The sauce ended up very thick, but did taste good. My kids didn't like the texture. Would try again with more water maybe...
