Very good for what it is - simple peas with onions and garlic. The problem here is the cooking time - 10 minutes? No; just long enough to heat through.

Sometimes I sprinkle parm cheese on top, and sometimes I stir in a little heavy cream.

The best peas I've ever had. I followed the recommendation of using chicken bouillon dissolved in water in lieu of the broth. Very tasty!
