Needless to say this green bean casserole pasta recipe was inspired by the famous holiday dish. Who said that you can only have green bean casserole in Thanksgiving? The best of all, this dish made you eat more green beans. That means more vegetables and fiber.
Prep Time: 5 Minutes Cook Time:35 Minutes Serving: 4-6
If you have leftover from the holiday dinner, depending on the quantity you have on hand, you can generally add 1 can (15oz) cream of mushroom soup and toss it with the pasta and serve. Otherwise, this is the way how I always prepare this delicious vegetarian pasta recipe.
2 pounds Frozen Cut Green Beans
1 pound Bow Tie Pasta (or any kinds of short pasta)
2 Cans (15oz each) Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Handful (about ½ Cup) French Fried Onions
1 Pot of Water (reserve 2 cups of pasta water)
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Canola Oil
Add a couple cans of sliced mushrooms to bump up the vegetables of this easy dinner meal. Just to make sure to drain the liquid from the can.
You can also serve the French fried onion on the side to let your family or guests to add as much or as little as they want.
A healthy alternative of French fried onion is toasted slivered almonds.
