How to get even the most stubborn eaters to eat their greens? Try this delicious Tuscan Recipe from Lisa Clifford!

Nonna’s peas and one of the only ways I can get my son to eat something green:

  • Good olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Fistful of cubed pancetta dolce (or bacon)
  • 3 cups of frozen peas
  • Level teaspoon of sugar
  • Salt to taste
  1. Sizzle the chopped garlic in a good glug (yes, stole that word from Jamie Oliver, love its sound) until the olive oil has absorbed the taste of garlic but garlic is not brown or burnt.
  2. Add cubed pancetta or bacon and let sizzle until the bacon is well cooked but nowhere near crunchy.
  3. Add frozen peas and let sizzle and cook about 3 minutes, add splash of water if needed.
  4. Add sugar and cover with water, just enough to cover the peas.
  5. Let boil for ages so that the peas are soft and you don’t have to strain too much water out of the pot.
