"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

2 tablespoons olive oil
3 skinless boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 3/4-inch
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 large shallots, chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1/2 cup frozen peas
