    These taste like the peas I had while growing up! I used frozen peas and dried mint and 1/2 tsp. of sugar. Super yummy! Made for Englands virtual culinary tour 2009.

    I was looking for a quick and easy way to fix peas to go with meatloaf, and this hit the spot perfectly. I had some Penzey's dried spearmint on hand, and it made for an absolutely delicious light sauce. What a wonderful discovery!

    This is a great way to dress up frozen peas. I microwaved the peas and then added the additional ingredients and returned to the microwave for an additional minute. Served these with Garlic Red Mashed Potatoes recipe #106643 and Terrific Meat Loaf recipe #90434.
