  Butter 4 Tablespoon
  Olive oil/Other vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Oregano 2 Teaspoon
  Frozen peas 1 Cup (16 tbs), thawed

1 Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
2 Meanwhile, in a food processor, mince the garlic. Add the onions and coarsely chop; set aside. In the same work bowl, mince the fresh basil and parsley (if using); set aside.
3 Cut the carrots and squash into thin slices. Cut the ham into 1/2 inch cubes.
