Yummy Peas and Macaroni Recipe

(editor’s note: This is another favorite that I am re-posting. Andrew still doesn’t like peas anymore but I still make it once in a while.)

This is anopeas and macther hand-me-down recipe from my awesome mother-in-law and a favorite in my family. 🙂 We don’t eat meat on Wednesdays and Fridays year-round ( and not just during lent), and this makes a quick and easy meatless  meal.

It also makes a good recipe for the summer since you don’t have to deal with a hot oven. 🙂
