Herbed Peas and Carrots

No TV dinner or other midcentury American meal would be complete without the addition of peas and carrots. Made sweet with shallots and butter, and livened up with a bit of parsley, this is a side dish worth reviving.

  2. 2Add water and continue to cook until liquid evaporates and carrots are tender, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. 3Add peas and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in parsley, season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and serve.
