  • 2 pounds baby potatoes, washed and halved
  • 2 cups frozen green peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Fresh parsley chopped, for garnish


  • Place the potatoes in a pot, add the salt, and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook until just par-boiled - this will take about 20 minutes.
  • Add the frozen peas to the potatoes and boil for 5 more minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes and peas and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, add the butter, olive oil, black pepper and garlic. Saute the garlic over medium heat for 3 minutes.
  • Pour in the heavy cream and milk, and add the grated parmesan cheese. Whisk together and bring to a low boil. Continue to whisk until the mixture thickens.
  • Add the drained potatoes and peas. Toss into the sauce until well coated.
  • Pile into a serving bowl and sprinkle with a little chopped parsley for garnish. Serve immediately.
