Wow, Easter was yesterday and Del Montel came to the veggie rescue of our meal. I was asked to create a recipe for my friends who were hosting the Easter celebration. Because I’m working with Del Monte and the request was Green Bean Casserole that’s what I made. It’s really easy to throw together you just toss the main ingredients and then bake if for 30 minutes. EASY PEASY!
2 can (10.75oz.each) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup milk
2 tsps. soy sauce
¼ tsp. black pepper
4 can (14.5oz.each) any style Del Monte® Green Beans, drained
2⅔ cups French’s® French Fried Onions, divided
Stir soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, beans and 1 1/3 cups onions in a 3-qt. casserole.Bake at 350° F, uncovered, 25 minutes or until bean mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir bean mixture. Sprinkle with remaining onions.Bake 5 minutes longer or until onions are golden brown. – See more at: http://www.delmonte.com/recipes/detail/green-bean-casserole/#sthash.CLMnqx7b.dpuf
