Sweet Pea Spread

Sweet Pea Spread

Fresh garlic and a hint of lemon bring out the sweetness of peas. In summer, use fresh peas, but frozen will work, too. This spread is great on sandwiches with prosciutto or another type of ham and good cheese, or simply serve it with breadsticks or crostini. Prep: 10 minutes.
