    If you love the green bean casserole from the back of the cream of mushroom can, you will love this. All fresh ingredients are used--it takes some time, but well worth it.

      I must be the only American who has never had green bean casserole before, but I thought I'd try it. I don't normally buy canned soups, so this recipe is ideal. This came out really good with just the right amount of sauce with a hint of thyme. I'll be making this again. Thank you for posting!
