Whoa! Microwave vegetables? - 1 star. Pan-cooked? - 4-5 stars! Never, never, never microwave as your primary cooking method ... it ruins your food, cooks unevenly, and gives a "tinny" flavor....

I wouldn't change a thing about the sauce, however I cooked the snow peas in boiling water for about 4 minutes instead of using the microwave. The garlic and butter smelled so good while they w...

Quick and simple. Followed the recipe to a tee, cooked for 3 minutes on high in the microwave. They came out crisp, retained their beautiful colour, and the lemon, butter, and Italian seasonin...

This actually wasn't bad. I really liked the flavors of the lemon, butter, and Italian seasonings. Next time I don't think I'll cook the snow peas quite as long since they came out a bit soft.

This recipe was fantastic. The only change I made was I added the minced garlic from a jar and left out the Italian seasoning. I would definetly use this one again.

Made this while I was making salmon--acted as a great means to cleanse the palette between bites of fish. Quick and easy ! Will definitely make again.

I was not a snow pea fan until now. This is a great recipe! In the winter, it makes you think of summer and I can't wait to make it with farmer's market snow peas in the summer!
