Peas cooked with sage add a delicious flavour, far less predictable than mint. Last time I cooked this was with a roast chicken and it was went great.

Loved this recipe. At first I was iffy while cooking it because I felt it was missing something but then added 2 T of butter to the pan and loved the taste. Definitely will fix this again.

I made this for Thanksgiving, and everyone said they liked it, but nobody gushed over how good it was. I used precooked Italian sausage instead of bacon, because I found the recipe after I'd finished shopping, and that's all I had. Next time, I'll use bacon, or at least add the sausage with the peas instead of with the onion.

These were really good. I felt that the bacon flavour got a bit lost though. All in all, it was nice to serve boring peas in a new exciting way. I may try adding the bacon already cooked at the end. Thanks for expanding my horizons!
