Cheesy Peas and Potato Casserole

This hearty side dish casserole is also delicious made with chopped cooked asparagus or broccoli florets in place of the peas.

3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 (1.5 ounce) package four-cheese Toscana sauce mix
1 cup milk
2 cups Hungry Jack® Mashed Potato Flakes
1/4 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheese blend
4 ounces (1 cup) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese


Cook peas as directed on package. Drain; keep warm.

Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, combine water, butter and sauce mix; stir to mix. Bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add milk. Remove from heat. Add potato flakes; with fork, beat well until potatoes are of desired consistency.*

In ungreased 9 x 5-inch (1 1/2-quart) glass baking dish or 1 1/2-quart microwave-safe casserole, layer half of potatoes. Top with peas, Parmesan and Romano cheese blend and remaining half of potatoes. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Microwave on HIGH for 2 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted.
