Delicious, quick and easy. This recipe is perfect for busy days. I used a mixture of frozen green beans, yellow beans and carrots. I had some fresh peas and added them to the mix, and I went with the cream of mushroom soup option. In future I may try the ccream of onion or add chopped onion and some herbs to the mixture.
