Fresh Green Peas & Mushrooms

Some foods just go together, like ice cream & fries... and peas & mushrooms! I discovered this combination at a big Italian Sunday dinner. I couldn't resist making it when I found fresh green peas.

Prepping fresh green peas takes a bit of effort, but it is well worth the time removing the peas from their pods. I found it very hard to resist not eating them all raw. The smaller peas are best eaten raw because they're still sweet. The bigger ones are a bit starchier and not as good.

Fresh Green Peas & Mushrooms
The basics for the recipe are peas and mushrooms. Otherwise, you can add whatever you want!
