Our Test Kitchen combines sweet, crunchy pea pods with tangy cream cheese for this one-of-a-kind appetizer. The cute, little “boats” are just enough for two, but the recipe is easy to increase for guests.
Tamara Hanson of Big Lake, Minnesota loves this "remarkably easy dish" she prepares in her microwave, especially in summer. The buttery flavor and tender veggies make this the perfect side dish to virtually any entree.
