Italian Seasoned Snow Peas

Sometimes coming up with a tasty veggie side dish can be the hardest thing especially when all you have in your crisper is a small package of snow peas. Plus having a veggie-phobic partner can make this even more difficult. So when in doubt, take a trip to Italy. Even if it's only due to the flavours and this one will go over big with the carnivores in your family. Mr. Turning the Pages loved it and wanted seconds which is high praise coming from a man who tried to tell me steak is it's own food group.

Do you like snow peas? How do you serve 'em up?


  1. I enjoyed the snow peas a lot. In fact i never thought i would like snow peas. I thought wrong thanks to u baby.

  2. Love your new cooking blog! My hubby grew snow peas in our Veggie garden last summer and they were fabulous so am always looking for creative ways to cook them!!
    They were also great raw with a dip...especially in summer..
