I Didn't Know That

Ezra Klein posted a recipe for spaghetti with peas and mint today. I don't know what English peas are, but it sounded good. And as another poster noted, anything with butter is usually good.
Another poster noted that mint an chilis are a classic Italian combination. I didn't know that.
Recipe of the day: Last night, I made spaghetti with shelled English peas, torn mint, a lot of pecorino Romano cheese and black pepper, and a few tablespoons of butter. Cook the peas and put them in an ice bath, cook the pasta, combine the ingredients along with a cup or so of the pasta water, and serve. Delicious.
