Creamy Green Bean Casserole

This scaled-down green bean casserole recipe takes a spin on the classic side dish. You can replace the green beans with any other frozen veggies. I like a mixture of carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. —Rosemary Beaudoin, Plainville, Connecticut

    I made this for Thanksgiving. I made a larger quantity than the recipe called for, so I added an entire can of cream of mushroom soup, an entire bag of frozen French cut green beans, and more sour cream and cream cheese. Maybe I should have thawed out the green beans first, because after I baked it for about 35 minutes or so, the green beans were still sort of crunchy. My proportions of ingredients seemed a bit off because it came out with too much of the sour cream and cream cheese mixture. I think I would try it with canned French cut green beans next time.

    Question: Can fresh garden beans be used in this recipe? if so, do the beans need to be blanched?
