Regardless of what you need this recipe for, it is delicious and will be ready in just a few minutes.
Sometimes my kids get bored of frozen vegetables, so this is the perfect way to switch things up.
Ingredients needed for Italian Peas:
- olive oil
- bag of frozen peas
- chicken stock (or broth works great too!)
How to make Italian Peas:
Step 1: In a large non-stick skillet (this one is my favorite), heat olive oil over medium heat.
Step 2: Add diced onion (you can dice it as small as you prefer) and garlic and saute until onions are soft and clear (about 4-5 minutes).
Step 3: Add bag of frozen peas (they can still be frozen, no need to thaw them) and chicken stock to the pan. Cover pan with lid.
Step 4: Let simmer for about 10 minutes, or until peas are soft and heated through. Stir them occasionally and when they turn bright green in color, you know that they are done.
Make sure not to overcook these peas because they will become wrinkly and squishy.
Step 5: Season with salt and pepper and serve.
