Cut the roots of the pearl onions and immerse them in boiling water for about a minute. Drain and rinse with cold water. Pinch the end of the stem and a peeled onion will pop out. Set them aside.
In a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt the butter. Add the flour and continue whisking until the mixture is lightly browned. Slowly add the milk and continue whisking until the mixture thickens slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the peas and pearl onions (which have been set aside). Let simmer 5 to 7 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
