“After experimenting time and time again, I finally came up with my own version of this popular and easy casserole which EVERYONE in my household enjoys! (The secret ingredient is the peas!) My family likes the proportion of peas to ground beef - but I've also made it using 1.5 pounds ground beef and it turns out just as tasty.”
