Pantry dump & bake – with new Libby’s vegetable pouches! (+easy veggie casserole)

I’m always on the lookout for new products – and sometimes, they come to me!  As  RecipeRedux member I get access to foods that might not even be on the market yet…like the new Libby’s Vegetable Pouches, which are easy to open, shelf stable, and cook in the micro wave in 1 minute.  They’re an alternative to canned veggies, and taste better in my opinion!

With the cold weather finally here on the east coast, tis the season for a warm, cozy, casserole – by using Libby’s vegetables, beans, and whole grain pasta, this is an all-in-one meal that reheats perfectly for lunches.  No pre-cooking, sauteing, or chopping here – just dump all the ingredients into a pan, bake, and serve.  While it’s in the oven, sneak in a workout, relax, or enjoy time with your family!

I received free samples of Libby’s new Vegetable Pouches mentioned in this post. I was not compensated for my time.

Easy Veggie Casserole

  • 1 pouch Libby’s green beans
  • 1 pouch Libby’s green peas
  • 1 pouch Libby’s corn
  • 1 handful chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 15-oz can pinto beans

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/2 lb whole wheat short noodle pasta
  • 3 oz mozarella or cheddar cheese

Directions
Grease a casserole pan (mine is 8″ diameter and 4″ deep) and preheat the oven to 350F.  Drain pouches and beans, and fold together with a spatula with noodles, broth, parsley, egg, and milk in a mixing bowl.  Pour in to casserole pan, and bake for 45 minutes.  Sprinkle on cheese and bake for another 5 minutes until melted.  Serves 4.
