Sweet Baby Peas with Onions and Capers

Sweet Baby Peas are sautéed with onions, capers, and extra-virgin olive oil until they are caramelized and tender to perfection!  These sweet peas are delicious and rich in Vitamins A, C and Iron! 
 They will compliment as a side dish to any main course.  My husband Joe loves to cook on the weekends, and this is one of his favorites dishes that my kids ask for every time!
A light vegetable dish you can serve all year round. Made with simple ingredients you probably have on hand, such as frozen peas, sweet yellow onions and non-pareil capers (the ones that are marinated in vinegar), which adds wonderful flavors to the peas.  I am sure your family will love them as much as we do!
