MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2012

i made this recipe for Christmas dinner not really expecting too much. to my surprise everyone loved it! even the kids who don't like peas were asking for more. i omitted the water chestnuts since we don't really like them. i added some Mrs. Dash and some pepper to taste. the peas baked nicely and didn't shrivel up from the heat. this is a recipe that will be passed on.
