    I had only 16 oz. of peas, and cut down just a tiny bit on the cheese. I wasn't expecting much, but I really liked this dish. I will try it again, but maybe with cheddar cheese and mushrooms just to see what happens. Just stuck three containers in the freezer (I live alone); ate TONS after I took it from the oven; got another portion for me tonite. I think this would be wonderful to take to pot lucks. Easy and good.

    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?

    This was a great addition to my lineup. Being a single guy, little casseroles like this can be good things to have in the fridge. I would definitely recommend some S&P for this, as it was a little bland. I think I may also try a stronger cheese, perhaps chedder, the next time I make this. Good recipe.

    Easy to make. Even my husband who doesn't like swiss cheese, liked this dish. I used panko breadcrumbs because that's what I had in the house, and it came out great. Very tasty.
