I used fresh cream peas and diced ham and it turned out very good.
This was good. I did add some fresh garlic and a bit of butter the second time I made it. I also used more pepper to suit our tastes. The creamy sauce is good but for my husband and I it was great when amp'd up with the garlic, butter and extra pepper.
Great !! Everyone loved it.
add a little ground nutmeg to it, it is very good.and use the liquid from the Peas and Carrots,then add a little heavy whipping cream
Super easy, especially with little ones running around. And, they ate it too because there wasn't a lot of different tastes to it. Good for left over carrots and peas too.
