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

– 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.
– Add cubed pancetta or bacon and let sizzle until the bacon is well cooked but nowhere near crunchy
– Add frozen peas and let sizzle and cook about 3 minutes, add splash of water if needed
-Add sugar and cover with water, just enough to cover the peas
-let boil for ages so that the peas are soft and you don’t have to strain too much water out of the pot.
