How Green Is My Casserole

Total Time

Please note that I haven't made this, and I only tasted it (I really dislike lima beans, you see, and peas aren't a favourite either). But I asked for the recipe at the potluck I was at, since everyone else seemed to be really going for this. I admit, the taste I had was good--but of course I had no lima beans in my wee helping! I've been meaning to post it for a bit, and just realized it's perfect for St Paddy's Day, so I'd better get it into the database now. I made the name up, by the way; I was told it was called "Green Vegetable Casserole". Boring.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350F; have ready an 8-inch casserole dish sprayed lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cook each frozen vegetable separately, according to the pkg directions; my potluck host (who had made this) told me she does this in the microwave, and that she slightly undercooks the veggies.
  3. Drain vegetables well and set aside; thinly slice the green pepper and set that aside as well.
  4. Blend together the softened cream cheese, mayonnaise and milk to make a thin sauce.
  5. Place the lima beans into the casserole dish, then 1/3 of the green pepper slices, then the green beans, then 1/3 of the green pepper slices, then the peas, then top with the remaining green pepper slices.
  6. Pour the sauce over the veggies, then cover top of casserole with the parmesan, then dust lightly with paprika for colour.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.

How yummy is this casserole! I was skeptical about making it, but I needed something different and this turned out so good! I didn't add the green pepper, but otherwise followed the directions exactly and this was very yummy. Thanks!

This is a delicious casserole! It will definitely be one I take to church functions, etc. The only change I made was that I used a red pepper instead of a green pepper (I had the red pepper). The red with all the other green vegetables made a beautiful contrast and I don't think it took away from the name of the dish. If you make this, be sure you blend the cream cheese, mayo and milk until there are no lumps. I cooked mine in a 7 x 11 inch casserole dish and had to cook it about 30-35 minutes. Delicious! Thanks Lennie! Made in participation with the Cookathon for Lennie.
