I love this recipe! A good, basic one to build on. The only things I did differently was to substitute 1Tbsp of sesame oil for the olive oil and sprinkled with sesame seeds once finished. Yummy!

Good. Just found them to be a "little" too oily. Will try 1/2 the olive oil next time.

I made it for the first time and it turned out really great. Will definitely make again.

Great simple recipe for my first time making sugar snap peas and it was delicious! Will make again.

I reduced cook time due to personal preference (I like them crunchy) but other than that this is perfect as written.
