Worth the work, and will feed a hearty sized family gathering. Everything but the rice can be prepared ahead ot time, then just before guests arrive or the family washes up, heat to boiling, add rice and cook. Save defrosted peas until rice is about 1/2 to 3/4 done then add peas to the pot: that way they don't fall apart. This is a dish that will create tastebud memories for your children they will carry into adulthood...it did for me!

About 50 minutes before serving time, bring mixture to a rolling boil, add all the other ingredients and cook over low heat until moisture is absorbed.
