1. Remove the core and outer leaves of the lettuce. Slice the head into thin shreds.
2. Place the butter, water, sugar, and salt into a 2-quart saucepan. Top with the lettuce, then the onion, then the peas. Sprinkle with the parsley and cover.
3. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer about 10 minutes, or until the peas are tender. Spoon the peas along with any juices into individual dishes.
