These were very good. We love to eat them cold out of the fridge but this was a nice change. When I make it again, I will decrease the butter by half and perhaps use only 1/2 butter & 1/2 olive oil. This is a great, fast side veggie dish! I think one helpful tip would be to take the peas out of the fridge about an hour prior to cooking so they come up to room temp and not take so long to heat up to avoid over cooking the nuts and risking a bitter taste. Thanks for sharing, served with recipe #99423 http://www.food.com/recipe/chicken-spaghetti-99423.
mmm this was yummy! I loved the pecans with the snap peas, very nice combo! Mine ended up really buttery, but I forgot that I didn't have as much of the peas as the recipe called for, so I should have cut back on the butter too. Totally my fault. This was so quick and easy, and will surely be repeated in our house. Thanks so much for posting!
