Pea season will be here soon and with it comes wonderful variations of pea side dishes. On a search for a new way to prepare peas for our family, we found a delightful recipe for garlic snap peas. My family LOVES garlic, but we also love cheese. I decided to change up the recipe and add in a little Parmesan cheese. My kids couldn’t get enough! These Garlic Parmesan Snap Peas are the perfect compliment to when you are wanting a light and tasty meal. This is great with peas in the pod, but I think it would work well with shelled peas also.
