Remove 1 cup of the cheese sauce and set aside.

Stir drained mushrooms into remaining sauce.

Filling: Cook peas acording to package directions; drain.

Combine peas, chicken/turkey, pimiento and the 1 cup reserved cheese sauce.

Spread about ¼ cup filling over the unbrowned side of each crepe, leaving a ¼ inch rim around edge.

Roll up crepe. Place, seam side down, in a 12x7x2 inch baking dish.

Repeat with remaining crepes.

Pour the remaining cheese sauce over crepes.
