"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."

"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!"
