Festive Green Bean Casserole

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


6-8 servings

This recipe came from a cookbook my son gave to me over 20 years ago. It's a tasty dish that I make often for family get-togethers and potluck suppers.


  • 1 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 packages (16 ounces each) frozen French-style green beans, thawed and drained
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a skillet, saute red pepper and onion in butter until tender. Add soup, milk, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce; stir until smooth. Stir in beans and water chestnuts.
  2. Transfer to an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes or until heated through.
