Stacylu, we really enjoyed these peas! I did make a few changes out of necessity. I couldn't find Sugar Snap Peas so I used Snow Peas. I cooked them in 3 TBS butter for 5 minutes, added the garlic and then the water as needed to add some moisture. Even though I used Snow Peas, the results were wonderful! So very colorful and a delightful addition to our table! I will definitely make this recipe again! Next time, I may add a little green sliced onion to the mix. Absolutely delicious! Thank you for your recipe, Stacylu!!

This is a very easy, healty, & tasty side dish for any meal! I made this to go with flank steak...YUM! One note to mention: Definitely use cherry tomatoes with this! I didn't have time to go to the store, so I chopped up a large tomato. Although still very tasty, it was rather messy & mushy that way. Also, garlic salt seemed to work well as an "on-hand" sub for fresh garlic.

This is a simple but tasty side dish! I have made it true to recipe and also made it with snow peas instead of snap peas with tomatoes and diced red bell pepper. I would agree that it is very adaptable.

I didn't quite have 1 cup of tomatoes, but I did have mushrooms to use. So flexible!

Love this recipe. We used a little olive oil instead of cooking spray. We didn't have cherry tomatoes, so we cut some small tomatoes into quarters. So quick and easy and delicious.

A wondeful, easy, colorful and tasty side dish! I added some thin asparagus to the sugar snap peas and tomatoes, and everyone really enjoyed it (well, my fiance loved everything BUT the asparagus -- he hates the stuff! -- but our roomie and I loved all of it!). Will make again.

I have always steamed or microwaved my sugar snap peas - never again. This method preserved their crispness and was so easy. I added a little thinly sliced red onion and used about twice as much garlic.

Not only was this delicious, but was really an attractive course. I, like some others suggested, used some olive oil for flavor.

This was very good! I didn't have fresh tomatoes, so I used canned tomatoes that I drained and I added a lot of fresh minced garlic as we like lots of garlic. I also used olive oil. I served this with Pecan crusted salmon and mushroom and ricotta cheese. DH and I will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing.
