Peas and Parmesan is a dish I had never heard of until I spent Thanksgiving with an American friend. When she identified the side dishes for the Brits around the table, this stood out. Having cheese with peas during a roast meal was to me sacrilege. I was so wrong.  The parmesan melts so delicately on the piping hot peas, the create a little coating that re-melts when it hits the fork; totally divine. I could have had the entire bowl quite happily. They are so gorgeous with the other dishes especially Roasted Parmesan ParsnipsHoney and Orange Carrots and Low Fat Roast Potatoes.
