To add or not to add?

I am making tortellini and crab Alfredo with a bread crumb/cheese topping for dinner.  I am trying to decide on a veggie and thought maybe I would add some peas to the dish.  I usually make my tortellini with peas and prosciutto in a cream sauce, so similar idea.  My kids will sometimes eat peas in a dish like this, but not alone, so I am thinking by adding them, I could make it a one-pot meal.  What do you all think, would you add them or not?  Do you think it sounds like a good mix of ingredients?

 I w ould add them, since the kids eat them in a similar dish. My boys were the same way. They wouldn't eat peas alone, but would eat them in vegetable soup, tuna casserole and tortellini, shrimp & peas in cream sauce.

If that's the only way the kids will eat them, then by all means add them!  I would add them anyway because I love peas!  :)

Thanks ladies. I was thinking it sounded good, but wasn't 100% sure if it would go well. I think I will add them!

 I think if you like peas they would play well together.

Thanks Ladies, I added them and it was really good!  Actually they added a little sweetness and a bit of balance for the really rich flavors of all the other ingredients.  My DS did still try to pick them out, smh, but the rest of us really liked it!
