I use frozen peas for this one because they are always available but when the fresh peas are in season I use them. They make it even more delicious.


  1. Heat oil and butter in skillet over medium heat. Stir in onions and garlic, cook about 5 minutes until starting to brown just slightly.
  2. Add peas, season with salt, pepper, a pinch of parsley and a pinch of Italian seasoning. Cover and cook until the peas are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes depending on how you like them done. I don't like mine mushy so I just cook them about 10 minutes.
  3. When you serve them, sprinkle the cheese over top.

In my opinion, this recipe could benefit by adding a few tablespoons of liquid. Taste was good, but the peas seemed rather dry to me. Thanks.

I made these for the "Best of" tag game and they are delicious and simple. I made them as directed but used a minimal amount of olive oil and omitted the butter. If individuals really want the buttery taste they can add a dab to their individual servings. More garlic is better too!

This was a very nice way to add some extra flavor to plain old peas. I was out of Romano cheese, so I used Parmesan instead. Loved the Italian flavors in this one.
