I made this recipe on 11/14/13 as part of mine and my SO's dinner,and most importantly the Billboard Tag game.Since it was just two of us,the recipe was reduce by half.For the pasta, Angel Hair was used.I didn't have a way to puree the peas,so half of them were mashed with a fork. And the recipe was continued as written. We both really like cheese,so in the pasta/pea mixture a blend of Romano/Parmesan was used and then right before serving it was topped with finely shredded Parmesan.Both my SO and myself give this a good solid 4*'s. I certainly will be making this again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

Very nice side dish, I used multigrain Fusilli pasta and sharp old cheddar for the cheese. Just made 4 ounces of pasta with 1 cup of peas and the onion cus it was just for a side for the two of us. We enjoyed it and will make it again.

Made as directed adding a bit of garlic, just because I love garlic, and this made for a quick and easy weeknight meal that we really enjoyed. Thanks for sharing this here with us. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
