Healthier Green Bean Casserole

This recipe comes from Better Homes and Gardens - Family Favorites Made Lighter. Regular green bean casserole is calorie laden, so for those that want it tasty but healthier, give this recipe a try. A couple of things tweaked by me.

Ingredients

cooking spray
2 pkg
9 oz. each frozen french-style green beans or 2 cans 15 oz. each
2 tsp
light butter
1/3 c

3 Tbsp
fine dry bread crumbs

10 3/4 oz. size lower fat condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/4 c

1 small
can fat-free french fried onions (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
2Cook frozen green beans according to package directions. Drain well. (If using canned beans, just drain & use.)
3Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, cook onion in light butter, until onion is tender. Stir in bread crumbs. Remove from heat.
4In a large mixing bowl, stir together soup, yogurt, and diced pimiento. Stir in beans.
5Transfer mixture to prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle crumb mixture atop beans, in casserole dish. *(For using French fried onion, see next step.)
6Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 mins., or until mixture is heated through and crumbs are golden.
*(If using French fried onions, instead of crumbs, bake for 20 mins.; take out of oven, and sprinkle on the French fried onions, and put back in oven, for another 5-10 mins.)
