  • easy recipe for peas - the best side dish that's always a crowd pleaser

    I’m always trying to get our girls to eat more vegetables. Honestly, I’m always trying to get myself to eat more vegetables {outside of salad}. I’ve played around with peas and found a crowd pleasing flavor combination that even my kids will eat, and I think you’ll love them, too.

    These peas make a great side dish, but are also phenomenal when smashed into pasta. They’re so quick and easy to make, too.

    Don’t judge, but this is yet another recipe that I’ve made fresh and from a can and I personally prefer canned {insert teeth grit}. I toss a can of drained peas with minced shallot, butter and white wine for a flavor combination that had Adalyn asking for seconds.

    Of course I like to have a healthy balance, so I served these peas with prosciutto stuffed chicken breast and fontina pasta, of course 😉
