Green pea casserole makes a great side dish anytime.

Green Pea Casserole

This green pea casserole goes with just about any meat and with any meal.  If you like peas, you will love the crunchiness of the water chestnuts in the casserole along with the crumb topping. I think this is an easy casserole to throw together and a good way to serve green peas.  You could also use canned peas or even fresh peas in this recipe.  The recipe could be cut in half for 2 people or doubled for a large crowd.  This keeps well refrigerated and reheated in the oven or microwave.  You might also like our recipe for cheesy garlic cauliflower casserole.

Green pea casserole is wonderful to take to any buffet, holiday gathering or just make it for family.

1/2 cup butter or 8 tablespoon or 1 stick, divided

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup chopped green pepper

1 (12 ounce) package frozen green sweet peas, no need to thaw

1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimentos, drained

1 (8 ounce) can chopped water chestnuts

1 (10.5 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted (make your own with our recipe if you don’t like canned)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

25 Ritz crackers, crushed

Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet on top of the stove.  Brown onion, celery and green pepper.  Remove skillet from heat and add peas, pimentos, water chestnuts, mushroom soup, black pepper and salt.  Stir with spoon to combine all ingredients.  Pour into a baking dish. I used a 7 1/2 by 11 sized dish.  Anything will work that will hold the ingredients.  Melt remaining butter in a separate bowl and combine or toss with cracker crumbs.  Sprinkle cracker crumbs over casserole and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes until top is browned.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  I used Ritz Everything Crackers made with onion, poppy seeds, garlic and sea salt.  You can use any kind of crackers or even regular or seasoned bread crumbs on the casserole.
