No ho-hum peas these. These are peas all dressed up pretty. Onion, pancetta, fresh thyme and white wine (and I couldn’t help adding a bit of fresh minced garlic) - what a great, flavorful combination of ingredients! Happy to be the first reviewer and give this recipe two thumbs up. Read More

Love it, love it, love it! This dish adds an upscale touch to my meals while being so quick and easy to whip up. I wouldn't change a single thing, this recipe is perfect. My only recommendation to first time testers it to not overcook the peas once the wine is added, which I accidently did on my second batch. The slight flavor of the wine is simply delectable with the peas but the wine taste will dissipate the longer it is cooked so try not to surpass the recommended cooking time. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful recipe! Read More

Nice change from the your ordinary peas. The thyme really works well here and I also added some garlic. In a pinch I'm sure bacon would be a good sub for the pancetta. Read More

So easy and absolutely delicious! I doubled the pancetta since my package was a 4 oz pack and I didn't want to have it sitting around. it was so good on it's own and even the roommate who hates veggies liked it. he mixed it with his rice and ate it. Read More

This is a great way to cook boring old peas. I followed the directions exactly. I think it's worth using fresh thyme instead of dried. I have to cook mine a little longer than stated to get the right texture. Read More

Quick easy delicious...need to say more? Keeper! To keep them bright green do not overcook the peas just until they are no longer frozen and do not cover them because the vapor will overcook them and they will immediately turn dark green. Read More

It was great! But the pancetta didnt really crisp up it was a bit chewy. I would try to fry it longer than what the recipe says next time. Read More
