The sauted onions and garlic gave these great taste. I used peas and carrots since that ws what I had. Very easy tasty side dish!

Very good, however I saute the onions in olive oil in lieu of butter, for a much more dramatic taste.

Yep, tastes like peas and onions. Nothing special. They are quick to prepare though.

Nice change from the plain-ol' boiled green peas. Much more flavorful.

This is one that I will definitely make again. Wonderful flavor and easy to prepare. Had it with Italian Pork Chops as a flavorful side dish.

This is a simple but flavorful way to give your veggies some oomph!! I've been using this cooking method for a while now - it's wonderful with the green peas, but also great with green beans and broccoli. No more water-logged boring veggies!! Try it!
