add peas and basil. stir
juice the lemons. Add first lemon at beginning of cooking. Add rest throughout.

Add wine, lemon, seasoning to taste as it simmers.

simmering for 30 min or more makes it taste better, but it’s ready to
serve as soon as the peas are unfrozen. this amount will probably
serve 6-ish, depending on the size of plates and seconds.
theoretically, it could serve 8, but 5 is a guarantee.
