I did not use the basil and thought they turned out wonderfully. My carrots cooked to the degree I perfer and the frozen peas added any additional liquid that might have been needed to not dry out. I my opinion the fresh ground salt and pepper at the end is best and I like to add a small bit of minced garlic with butter and olive oil too. This is a fast tasty dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Do you have to add basil? It does not like my body. Is there something else I can sub. for it? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the recipe as a side for my garlic & rosemary mashed potatoes and Wiener Schnitzel. It was such a simple side but it was delicious - my 4 year old could not get enough. I added a tad more butter, some dry parsley, freshly minced garlic and salt/pepper. The carrots and peas were tender and super sweet. Next time, I will add a tad of heavy/whipping cream to make the carrots/peas creamy. My husband made the comment that he never wants to eat frozen peas and carrots ever again - big difference in taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This version of peas and carrots was a nice surprise for someone that usually does not like them. I thought the recipe was super fresh and delicious. Will definitely be cooking again for my family. Patience is the key when having to dice carrots. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I diced the carrots, and they took a lot longer to cook than what is written in the recipe. When I served it before they were completely done (just ran out of time cooking the meal. I will opt for frozen peas and carrots in the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used fresh carrots and made the recipe as stated. As written, it became dry and bland so I added a tablespoon of sherry but that didn't hep at all. It was a nice concept with fresh carrots but I think packaged frozen peas and carrots would have been superior. This recipe was a dud! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Yes! Try some fresh or dried thyme. It's a bit milder and is great with fresh veggies. I didn't have basil, so I used some fresh thyme from my garden. Yummmm! item not reviewed by moderator and published
