Is it to sweeten anything or to do something else? I want to make this recipe but my bf HATES sweet stuff in a meal unless its dessert anything with a slight sweet hint (even corn on the cob which i managed to get him to try last again with butter and pepper on it)
Rom - just like salt, sugar also brings out flavors. This is not a sweet dish by any stretch. I always make it according to the recipe and have not found the dish sweet in any way.
BrazenAmatuer - you will not be disappointed!
GrillingFool - the beauty of this dish is you could put in the final ingredients (minus the peas) to get them cooking so the rosemary won't be "woody". At the last minute add your fresh peas and briefly cook. You've got your peas cooked, which might be just the ticket for you. If I EVER find fresh peas I will make this and try it like this.
