I'm not sure how 20 oz of peas would have worked. I used 6 oz of peas and 4 oz of leftover quinoa, mushroom soup and instead of shredded swiss, I used 3 sections of Laughing Cow swiss and herb. no bread crumbs. It was wonderful, DH loved it too.

I followed this recipe exactly as written and loved it. Sometimes the simplest recipes turn out the best. Thanks for a keeper. And on a side note, I just have to comment on Andie's review: why in the world would you eat this when you are "not too crazy about swiss cheese" and then complain about the swiss cheese?
