Pea Pod Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Michelle S.

This is a casserole I have been making since high school. I worked in the kitchen of the local hospital and this was something they served the employees in the cafeteria. It was a great base that I have "spiced" up and added additional vegetables to over the years. You may layer as much as you like...add water chestnuts, mushrooms whatever your heart desires. I just prefer to keep it simple. Over rice it's a great fast meal.
