No recipe image available.A delightful springtime version of creamed peas with mascarpone cheese and fresh mint.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups freshly shelled peas or 1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas
1/4 cup chicken broth

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup (4 ounces) mascarpone

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place the peas in a small saucepan and add the chicken broth and garlic if using. Place over high heat, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the peas are tender. The liquid should be reduced to about 1 tablespoon; if not, increase the heat and reduce the broth accordingly.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat, discard the garlic clove, if used, season with salt and pepper, and stir in the mascarpone and mint.
  3. As soon as the cheese has melted, serve the peas.
