This simple side from Heather Sauter of Silver Spring, Maryland is a welcome alternative to green beans, and the pea pods look so pretty tossed with chopped onion. "This dish is a snap to make and tastes like a million bucks," Heather assures.

"This recipe is good for a starter but I added 2T soy sauce, 2 garlic cloves, chopped, 1 tsp powdered ginger, and crushed pepper. Sometimes that is all I'll eat for lunch. Delicious and still easy!"
