"The idea for this recipe came from " The Best of Country Cooking 2015 ". It was sent in to them by Donna Bailey from Orland, PA. I didn't have a lot of what she used and she did say that the cheese and veggies could be changed up.;) This is really great way to use up leftover ham & peas.this will easily serve 4 with salad and garlic bread.
