A creamy cheese sauce turns ordinary peas into a succulent side dish. I make this quite often for family gatherings, and it's always well received. —Lin Carr, West Seneca, New York

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded Swiss Cheese
  • 3 cups cooked peas

    I happened to have peas and swiss cheese in my refrigerator, and the combination sounded good so I was happy to find this recipe. I used low fat milk instead of heavy cream to cut down on fat & calories. Turned out great!
