This is a GREAT recipe. It reminds me of something my mom used to make. I don't normally like "simple" recipes, because I find them too bland or whatnot, but this really is a great and simple recipe. I was worried about putting in too many peas and/or onions, because I wasn't really measuring, but I think next time I will put a more generous helping in. I was also worried about it being too watery. Nope! I will definitely be making this one again, thanks! EDIT: I made this again last night and am currently eating it for lunch. You truly cannot go wrong with this recipe even if you totally screw up the portions; I barely had any onion, threw more cheese in, etc. I think pearl onions could be a good substitution for the chopped onions...could also try different kinds of sauces...lots of ideas!
I thought this was ok. It was good, but I've definitely had better versions of it in restaurants. Mine was a little bland and soupy. I used chicken broth instead of water and added fresh garlic, oregano, Italian seasoning, and fresh parsley per some of the reviews. I also doubled the cheese to use mine up. We still ended up adding crushed red pepper and garlic bread to give it more flavor. I think diced tomatoes, ground sausage, and basil could be good additions.
Simple ingredients and very easy. I always have another helping and I am not a pea lover. I do use chiken broth in place of the water.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this recipe! I have been eating "pasta with the peas" since I was a little girl. I now make it for my own family, and it is a favorite in our house!! If you want it to taste even more scrumptious, add a teaspoon of sugar to the sauce. That's how us Sicilian's do it! And if you don't like the bits of onion, just use onion powder instead. It's just as delicious! Bon Appetite! :)
Awesome! Best recipe for this yet! I used 1 c water and 1/2 pea juice. (I was afraid of watering down the sauce too much.) I only needed less than half peas (kids are picky) and I threw 3/4 sauce in blender to get rid of onion chunks before adding peas and cheese. Very good!
Could have used more peas and sauce. My dish got dry.
I'm sorry, but I didn't care for this recipe. There just was nothing special about it and the taste was very flat, for lack of a better word. I followed the recipe exactly, but was disappointed with the results. I've found tons of amazing and delicious recipes on this site, but this wasn't one of them. Again, sorry.
I liked this but I also doctored it up a bit. I used chicken stock instead of water and I sauteed garlic and pepper flakes with the onions.
