"I can still taste these wonderful peas in Mama's delicious white sauce. Our food was pretty plain during the week, so I thought this white sauce made the peas 'extra fancy' and fitting for a Sunday meal."

"This is a great basic recipe. However, I like to slice and caramelize onions and garlic in brown sugar, then add the other ingredients. And instead of flour, which makes it taste pasty, I mix a really big tablespoon on cornstarch in with the milk. It thickens it up much better than flour. Bring it to a boil and let it sit for a minute and serve it over mashed sweet potatoes."

"These were pretty tasty. I think it could have possibly used just a tad more sugar, but perhaps the peas I had just weren't the sweet kind. I'd make this side dish again (it was very easy), but maybe try to tweak the sauce just a tad."

"We loved this. The only thing I did differently was not precook the peas. I defrosted them completely and then added them when the white sauce had thickened."

"I've never enjoyed sweet peas so much! The ease of the recipe was a big bonus. Used F/F half and half instead of milk and it worked just fine."

"I got this recipe in a TOH book. I've been making this for many years. My husband loves it when I make it. His favorite meal is creamy meatloaf, homemade mashed potatoes, and these yummy peas. I also make a blueberry cobbler for dessert."

"First time ever making creamed peas and they turned out so good! Great, quick and easy side dish. Served it with salmon patties made from the fish my husband caught yesterday in the San Juans . . . ."
