Very good! I used SteamFresh peas and 1 T butter and 2 T brown sugar. Nice change to plain peas. Thanks for posting!

It's not easy to create a new way to make peas! I liked the simplicity of the recipe, with the result of the slightly different tasting peas. I did notice the family ate their peas more quickly tonight. Thanks for posting. Roxygirl in Colo.

We all gobbled this up. Buttery and sweet and the basil really made it 'different' from the norm. The children especially loved it. Made it to go with bbq'd pork tenderloin. Very easy and I'll definitely make again!
