This is so quick and easy to prepare, yet tastes great. I made this as written and added a little grated ginger. The crunchy pine nuts were my favorite part. Thanx for a quick and tasty vegetable side dish!

Really tasty and easy to make. I like my snow peas with a bit of crunch so didn't cook for as long as stated. Keeping this in mind I think next time I will dry fry my pine nuts and sesame seeds first to give them a bit of colour. Thanks Sharon for posting :)
