 Zesty Buttered Peas
I came up with this recipe one day when I wanted to add some "zip" to plain peas. This recipe did the trick! Everyone commented on the great flavor and festive color.
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 15 min.


  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh savory or 1-1/2 teaspoons dried savory
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 2 tablespoons diced pimientos


  • In a large saucepan, saute the first four ingredients in butter until
  • crisp-tender. Cover and cook over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or
  • until vegetables are tender. Stir in salt if desired and pimientos.
  • Yield: 6 servings.
