Tasty Thursday: Parmesan Peas

Hello again all! I wanted to share with you all today part of a delicious meal I cooked with love for my sweet Hubby's birthday last week, parmesan peas. It is based off of a recipe from Jamie Oliver's "Cook With Jamie" and I thought it would be the perfect simple vegetable to go along with the seared scallops and risotto that I was making. The light flavors compliment the scallops, while the parmesan helps to tie the flavors together with those found in the risotto. The Hubs seemed to really enjoy the peas, which is great because he is not the biggest veggie fan, so I know this will become a staple side dish in the Fruehauf house! 

Parmesan Peas



  • 1 bag of frozen pea, or four handfuls of fresh
  • 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • the juice of one lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste



Fill a medium pot halfway with water, salt the water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Add your peas and cook for 1-3 minutes, checking before removing from the heat. drain the peas and add them back to the pot. Stir in the butter until thoroughly melted. Add the lemon juice and cheese. Add salt and pepper to your desired liking. Serve immediately and enjoy!

And here is a view of the final meal. Stay tuned tomorrow and next week for the risotto and scallop recipes!
