A Different Green Bean Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Parsley

Still uses canned green beans, but not the other "classic green bean casserole" stuff.

Top Review by Cookinggina

This dish was really good. I thought my family would balk since it looks so much like the classic green bean casserole, but tastes different, but they loved it. I did find that I had to use 3 cans of green beans instead of 2. My beans were just floating in the sauce to begin with! :) But I added another can, and it was perfect. Very good and tasty recipe. Thanks so much for sharing this! ....Gina :)
