Boil some water. Pour the frozen peas into a colander. Toss the diced carrors into the boiling water. Boil for about 2 minutes. Strain into the peas. This will gently defrost the peas without overcoking.

Bake at 400f for about 20 minutes. If the top isn't golden brown yet, just switch the oven to broil and watch it like a hawk until it looks just right.
