Mediterranean Snow Peas

Recipe by  

"This takes 5 minutes in a pan. You want to barely cook these as noted to keep the lightly crunchy natural sweetness of this seasonal delicacy! Wash and trim the tips and pull larger strings off the snow peas."

We made these as written and they turned out nicely. I am happy to have a snow peas recipe that is not Asian-style flavored!

Really liked this recipe. Was happy to find a snow pea recipe that wasn't Asian food oriented for once. I used a bit more Italian seasoning than called for, but that was just personal taste.

Terrific. So nice to have another way to enjoy snow peas rather than in a stir-fry or with Asian flavours. This is going into my keeper file. So quick and easy too! Thanks Geophile

These were good. Quick, easy, and tasty. Next time I'm going to cut back on the salt a bit though.

Snow peas from our garden - delicious and simple to prepare with this recipe. I made as written and would do so again. Served these with - 'Mediterranean Beef Meatball Kabob', 'Molly's Mouthwatering Tzatziki Cucumber Sauce' and 'Grilled Corn Salad' - all from AR.
