Betty's Success Tip
The peas are added at the end so they maintain their texture and bright green color. If you don't have 30 minutes for them to warm through, just cook the peas separately in the microwave and stir in.
To make this luscious side dish even more appealing, sprinkle chopped fresh chives or chopped fresh or dried dill weed on top before serving.
