this was good but I felt it needs something else to boost the flavors together, needed more oil and I added in some garlic powder but still something was missing, I might make again with some other additions, thanks Syd!

Oh, and I also added a big clove of pressed garlic. Yum!

Like other reviewers, I felt that this was missing something. I began with fresh peas, which I blanched, then followed the directions as written; with the exception of adding more lemon, dill and sugar along with some butter to the pan before serving. The artichokes were great, but the peas were just okay. Thanks for giving me something new to try!
