This week we go easy-peasy with Cheesy Peas. (Sorry. I couldn't help myself.)

This is another of my mom's recipes. It's so simple yet flavorful, I have to wonder why I don't make it twice a week. And it is also one of the recipes that most reminds me of my mother.

It is simple, delicious and loaded with memories which is exactly what comfort food is all about.

Cheesy Peas

2 cans green peas, drained

1 small onion, sliced thin

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

Black pepper

One-eighth cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Heat oil in a medium-sized saucepan, then sauté onion until soft and transparent.

Add drained peas and sprinkle with black pepper to taste. Heat through. Stir in cheese and serve.
