White Bean Casserole
Use this mix to prepare 2 or 3 meals – one to eat now and one or two Bonus Meals to
refrigerate or freeze for later. Enjoy the original White Beans just as they come out of the
crock pot or create two entirely different meals using the Beans. Eat well, eat healthy, eat
economically and spend less time in the kitchen!
