    Excellent alternative for B.E.Peas! I added more veggies and wiped the pan from most of the bacon fat, and nevertheless, it turned out deliciously. Used the above as topping for pasta, so I made it on the drier side, and it was truly excellent, varied in texture and color. Very nice dish. Thanks! - 8/7/09
