I become to like this dish after I make some changes. I did like it at first because the green beans had no good taste and it took away from the dish and the sauce was not flavorful. If you feel the same way about this dish...try this recipe for the Holidays and tell your family and friends you are being the Green Beans Casserole.
For the Topping:
3 cups canned fried onions (about 6 ounces)
4 slices white bread, each slices torn into quarters
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1 Tablespoon parmase cheese
Pulse bread, butter, salt and pepper in food processor until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, about ten 1-second pulses. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with onions; set aside.
