If you haven't heard of Clara yet, where have you been? She's a 95 year old great grandmother who survived the Great Depression and shares her family's recipes, that got them through the hard times.
Many of these recipes I have eaten, back when I was a child - this is one of them. My mom made this when my dad went hunting and she would experiment different recipes on us kids. I remember one like Clara's pasta and peas except that my Mom used some Spaghetti sauce, green beans, pasta and potatoes. Of course we ALWAYS put in fresh garlic. Mom also put in some onion. I've not had it with the peas - But this recipe is exactly like my Mom's only she used green beans.
