Braised peas with spring onions & lettuce

This is my version of a classic French dish and, apart from it being delicious, what I love about it is that you can make it in literally a few minutes from start to finish. And I can guarantee you that practically everyone who turns their nose up at having some lettuce in with their peas ends up being converted.
