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.
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.
