I have never thought of roasting peas. This sounds very interesting.

The poppy is gorgeous!

Ciao Jeremy. Yours is a good question and I tried to answer it in my footnote. I have never eaten this kind of peas in Italy.

Ciao Mia. I hope you'll find some: they are so easy to cook and so good.

Ciao Francesca. Spero di riuscire a fare una foto decente la prossima volta che li preparo cosi' posso farvi vedere come sono.

Hi Lori Lynn. I also found the recipe interesting. Let me know if you try it. Thanks, I love my red poppy: it is so cheerful.


I like a combination of sugar snaps, snow peas (which we call mangetout in England, on the same principle as mangiatutto) and regular peas as a warm salad with a bit of lemon juice and olive oil as the dressing.

Hi Foodycat. What a nice idea! An all-pea salad. Thank you so much for the suggestion.
