MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 8, 2012

4.5 Stars: These are good, even tho my teenager would not let me add the red pepper. It would be much better with those. The next time, I will decrease the butter and soy sauce, or use more snap peas.

Absolutely wonderful. I think I've made this 3 times since I got my magazine, and I've already got more sugar snap peas in the fridge for tonight. YUM.

My family has recently discoved Sugar Snap peas in the produce section. I love to add them to pasta salads. But this was a terrific recipe to go along with the Asian pork loin. Everyone loved it! NO leftovers!
