Padella of Peas, Sweet Onions, and Mushrooms!

peas and sausage

This is a quick and easy side dish using three ingredients. I love peas, so versatile and a great leftover to prepare the next day. Oh yes, I loved The Princess and the Pea but always questioned the pea……

1 lb. of frozen peas
2 onions (finely chopped).
1 clove of garlic (sliced)
½ lb. of mushrooms (sliced) – I used button mushrooms but use whatever you like!
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
Salt and black pepper (to taste)

In a medium pan, medium heat, sauté olive oil, butter, garlic, onions for 3-5 minutes. Add mushrooms and peas. Add salt and black pepper to taste. Saute for 5-7 minutes.
This side dish is delicious with roasted sausage but perfect with other meats!
As mentioned, if you have left over peas, I would serve it the next day with fresh pasta.
Tip: in a medium pan, medium heat, add 1 tbsp. of tomoto paste, 1 tbsp. of butter, 1/2 cup of water and add the left over peas. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Prepare your favorite pasta and add the peas. Add a few red chili flakes and fresh parmigiano cheese! Delicious! You just prepared a tasty meal in less than 15 minutes!
