For a different spin on a pea side dish, I added fresh mushrooms. They add so much flavor and it is so simple to whip up.—Wendy Masters, Grand Valley, Ontario

"I'm so glad I found this. I had aging onions and mushrooms in the fridge, and needed something to go with the leftover chicken and noodles I made two nights ago. Perfect recipe. easy "pea"sy :) and delicious. I did add a little shake of basil at the end, because I just love basil in anything.

Oh, and I used kosher salt, and it was a teensy bit salty, so as cwfuff said, you might want to cut the salt in half (especially if you are using salted butter)."

"Simple but tasty preparation. I cook peas a lot, so it's nice to have different but easy ways to make them. I did cut the salt in half, though. This recipe is going into my "keeper" file."
