This is really easy and quite good! Next time I won't use the zest of a whole lemon but maybe half. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

These are such a neat mix of hearty and light-tasting all at the same time -- and such a different way to serve peas. I really liked the snap of the lemon zest in this, along with the caramelized flavor of the onion. Just a tasty fall dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
