Canned Corned Beef with Peas sauce a recipe my mom got from her mom during WWII My nannu worked at the RAF station in Luqa Malta and he liked to  gamble with the soldiers  and sometimes lose his pay, then he would  bring home British soldier laundry for my nanna to wash and cans of corned beef.  Growing up I did not understand I just knew I loved the nights my mom made this for us. Here is the simple recipe:

One 12 oz corned beef  cut into 8 pieces
One 15-16 oz tomato sauce

Let simmer for 15 minutes. add frozen  peas and let cook 5 more minutes. Serve with your favorite pasta or rice. Use in your favorite pasta recipe.
