I made quite a few changes to this recipe, that suited my family's tastes and made this a delicous new ways to have peas. First I used two cans of peas instead of one. I omitted water chestnuts and instead of a cracker topping I used durkee french fried onions. I test ran this at Easter with 15 guests to great reviews - this warmed up excellently and is a great make ahead option.
We didn't think much of this. If I were to make it again, I would leave out the water chestnuts - we didn't like the crunchiness in this at all. Thanks anyway.
This is similar to a dish my grandmother made, and it is excellent. Even if you aren't a fan of peas, I bet you will like this! Leseur baby peas are my favorite brand to use for this recipe, and you can use Cream of Mushroom soup in stead of Celery and skip the water chestnuts, and it is still delicious. Whenever I make it, there is never any left!
Very easy to make and quickly devoured. I'll double it next time, as it didn't even come close to 8 servings. I used frozen peas and baked 40 minutes; I think 30 minutes would have been better. Substituted a packaged 4-cheese blend and it was very tasty. I used Ritz crackers; the topping was great!
Delicious! I substituted cream of onion soup for cream of celery soup and left out the onions. I also used 2 cups of frozen peas instead of the canned peas. The frozen peas hold up better than the canned peas and don't get mushy on you. Great recipe! Will definitely do it again.
Great recipe! I leave out the chestnuts. Instead of canned peas, I use 15 ounces of frozen petite peas. Also use Ritz crackers for topping.
I make this often and sometimes add diced cooked chicken breast. This dish and a salad makes a quick meal.
We liked this alot! You could easily have put 2 cans of peas in that amount of sauce though and it would fare well. I'll do that next time.
I served this casserole at a potluck with a gathering of friends. Everyone liked it. I particularly liked the crunchiness of the water chestnuts, and the topping gave it a nice touch. I used a 15 oz. bag of frozen peas instead of canned. The cracker topping gave it a nice finish.
