Artichoke Hearts Sauteed with Baby Peas, Onions and Capers

Artichoke hearts sautéed with baby peas, onions, capers, crushed red pepper and fresh parsley is a staple dish in our family.  The artichokes are delicately tender to every bite while the peas are sweet and delicious, making this irresistible.  
You can use fresh artichoke hearts or frozen. We prefer to use the frozen artichoke hearts to help speed up the cooking time.

Next month it will be almost a year since we started our recipe blog, and even though its been fun, the hardest part is trying to get the actual measurements to Moms recipes when she cooks.  She never measures anything, and yet she amazes us with how relaxed she is when cooking, and claims it's due to years of experience.   
Artichoke hearts with baby peas is an easy side dish you can make in advance and re-heat before serving.  It's a favorite in our family, and we hope you will enjoy it as well!   This wonderful combo of vegetables goes perfect with any entrée.
 Thanks for stopping by!
