    I needed a quick side dish to go with dinner last night and chose this recipe. I used sliced canned potatoes since that's all I had. I used a little more milk to thin it a bit. Very good and so easy. I'll be making this often. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8.

    I like side dishes that can be put together in a matter of minutes. I used frozen peas, as I still like a crunch to them. I found that the 1/2 cup milk and 3 tablespoons flour made a VERY thick roux. So I will cut the amount of flour to 2 tablespoon. I made this for Zaar World Tour 8 for the Bistro Babes team.

    This is very good. Not lots of spices but comfort food. We eat creamed peas often but have never eaten them with potatoes before. I used fresh potatoes that I cut into small cubes then cooked in the microwave until just barely tender. Then I added them to the cream sauce. Then I folded in the peas so they wouldn't get mushy. The only thing I added was about 1 Tablespoon of butter. When DH came to get his food...he said, "What's that in the peas?" He took some. Made for ZWT #6 -2010.

    This was easy and what a comfort dish! I remember my Mom making this too but it never occured to me me to make it. I used bagged potatoes and frozen peas so had to adjust the liquid a bit but it came out creamy and wonderful. My daughter even ate this and she hates peas! Thanks.
