Never thought cooking Boston Lettuce would give such a wonderful result! It's a mouthwatering side dish.

I made it without the lettuce. My 18mos old loved it. Never thought before if mixing peas with cooked onions.

A great French classic that gives lovely depth and flavour to otherwise boring vegetables. Great for company too.
