Green Bean Casserole #2

Since we are now about to enter one of the busiest times of the year I thought I would share with you a yummy casserole that is easy on the pocketbook and great on the taste buds!! I have been making this since I was a newlywed and the funny thing is I don't even know the official name of the dish, hence I'll call it, Green Bean Casserole #2! Works for me:) Anyway, one of my favorite things about this casserole is that it calls for simple ingredients almost everybody has in their pantry. It's also quick and easy to make and last, but not least, it's a good "stick to your ribs" kind of meal;o) Since it already has veggies in it all you have to do is make a salad and add some rolls
Green Bean Casserole #2

1 lb. ground beef
finely chopped onion
minced garlic
1 can tomato soup (NOT SAUCE)
1can green beans (or you could use frozen)
instant mashed potatoes

Brown ground beef together with chopped onion (whatever amt. your family likes)I probably use about 1/4 cup.You can also either use garlic from the clove that you have chopped or sprinkle in a little garlic powder (again, what your family likes) After meat is nicely browned, drain the grease and then add 1 can green beans and 1 can tomato soup. Mix up well and then pour into a casserole dish you have sprayed with Pam or whatever you like to use. Follow the directions on the box for the amount of potatoes your family will eat. Mix up the potatoes and once they are made place them on top of the meat mixture. Since it's just me, Mr. P and Miss Bonnie I made the 4 serving amount tonight. Sprinkle with paprika and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until bubbly. Great for leftovers, too!

Thank you for this yummy-sounding recipe. I will have to try it this week!

I love Virginia! It is very beautiful...Have you ever been to Stratford Hall, the birthplace of Robert E. Lee? I love historical places. There are plenty in Virginia.

What about Michie Tavern at Charlottesville?
