Sautéed Peas with Shallots and Mint

Say what?  Peas with mint?  Trust me!  Sautéed shallots and mint go wonderfully with green peas.  I’m not sure why.  But no matter.  This side dish is a real winner.

Here’s two things to keep in mind as you are cooking: First, get the petite green peas if you can find them.  They’re small and tender, and I think a little sweeter than the bigger ones.  Second, don’t overcook the little babies!  They should resist a little when you bite into them (think: al dente pasta).  Tender is the goal, not mushy.
