Italian Roasted Snap Peas

Serve this Italian-inspired combination of sweet snap peas, leeks and tomatoes with roast chicken or garlic-rubbed grilled steaks.

Yield: 4 servings, about 1/2 cup each
Active Time: 10
Total Time: 35

Ingredients

  • 1 large leek, white part only, halved lengthwise and thoroughly washed
  • 1 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Cut leek halves into 2-inch lengths and then very thinly slice each piece lengthwise, yielding 2-inch-long strips. Toss the leek strips, peas, oil and salt in a medium bowl. Spread evenly on a baking sheet.
  3. Roast for 15 minutes. Stir in tomatoes. Return to the oven and roast until the vegetables begin to brown, about 10 minutes more. Toss with oregano and serve.

Tips & Notes

  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.
