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."
