      These were fantastic! I made it with peas and lettuce from our garden as part of my "French feast" with Mustard Garlic Pork Tenderloin, Zucchini Rice Pilaf, and Glazed Carrots (Carottes Vichy). Never had cooked lettuce before and we loved it, although I probably put in more than the called for pepper. Made for ZWT 8!

      These are some seriously awesome peas! We did not eat the lettuce after cooking but I did enjoy eating peas cooked this way! Instead of adding a bit of water I added little splashes of chicken broth. We had this for Father's Day dinner with steak and mashed potatoes! Yum! Thanks for posting! Made for The Queens of Quisine ZWT6!
