I do a version of this for "Mexican" night at my house. Add corn instead of peas and some red pepper flakes or green chilies or chilies in adobo for some heat and to make it Mexican style. Also some mozzarella cheese or Monterrey jack. My kids LOVE it.

I swapped zucchini for peas and regular diced tomatoes for fire roasted. We'll see how it goes over!

This side is a big plus with my family! I sometimes exchange the peas for either asparagus or zucchini and it gives it a different characteristic and still popular.When you have it left over and re-heat it the next day it tastes even better because all the flavors has a chance to come together. Its a filling side dish.

Not too bad but a little more flavor comes from fresh roasted tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes. Add chicken and this is already a meal!

I didn't have a can of fire Roasted tomatoes, so I just used a regular can of Hunts diced tomatoes and added fresh garlic. I also didn't use peas since my boys don't like them, but otherwise it was good and they ate everything on their plate. Could be a good main meatless option, but we served ours with chicken sausage.

My family liked it alot. Instead of peas maybe add zucchini for the summer taste. The fire roasted tomatoes added great flavor and went well with the chicken brasts I made.
