I have to confess. I made this dish for the pure and simple reason that I found a couple of bags of peas in the freezer and a bunch of leftover pearl onions from a potato dish I recently made. If you know me, you know I don’t like to waste food. I have a teenager in the house who demands bacon, so to make this dish I didn’t even need to go to the grocery store.
It's pure comfort food that can be eaten as a soup, but also a great side dish.
