Recipe Ingredients for Peas in Tomato Sauce

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped or equivalent amount canned tomatoes, diced
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
1 tablespoon fresh basil
1 cup water
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 medium zucchini, sliced
1 cup frozen peas

Recipe Directions for Peas in Tomato Sauce

  1. Remove peas from the freezer so that they can begin to thaw while the dish is simmering.

  2. Add olive oil and onions to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook 2 or 3 minutes until the onions soften a bit. Add the minced garlic and stir a minute.

  3. Add the tomatoes (canned and paste), sugar, oregano, basil, and water to the onions. Continue to cook another 5 minutes so that flavors begin to come together. Adjust seasonings as desired at this point. Add zucchini and cook 5 to 8 minutes. The zucchini should be cooked but still firm.

  4. Add the thawed peas and stir again until the peas are warm, about 2 or 3 minutes.

  5. Serve warm.
