Rabbit Stewed with Green Peas

This dish recipe has been created spontaneously from what one usually has. And cooking it was no mistake!

It is really delicious, and tender green peas are perfectly combined with delicate rabbit meat.

At first, my husband said – peas don’t go with the rabbit. And then, even with the bread everything cleaned up from the plate.
