When you're cooking a pasta recipe that calls for frozen peas, there's no need to cook the peas before adding them to the pasta. Many frozen vegetables and fruits, like peas, don't need to be thawed before they can be used in recipes. The same goes for berries, corn, bell pepper strips, broccoli, florets, and cauliflower florets. These can be thrown right into hot woks, skillets, and pots.
