This is a variation of my mother's recipe that I always make at Thanksgiving. It is incredibly easy to make.

  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook the frozen peas in the saucepan of boiling water for about 3 to 4 minutes, until heated through but still bright green. Drain peas in a colander, and return to the saucepan. Pour the pistachio-crumb mixture over the peas, mix well, and serve hot.
