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.

How to Make Healthier Green Bean Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.

  4. In a large mixing bowl, stir together soup, yogurt, and diced pimiento. Stir in beans.

  6. Bake 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.)
