2 Cans of Tuna

2 Cans french Style Green Beans

1/2 Cup Chicken Broth

Next, Grap your Med. size pan and turn burner to Med. high and melt your Butter. Then add your Chopped ingredients, Not the Cheese just yet, that’s Last.

While that reduces, Drain Tuna really well, and Drain Green Beans Really Really well. Try t get all moister out of Green Beans, this step is important , because when your casserole starts to cook in oven it can become watery. Then Toss green Beans with alittle seasoning Salt and Pepper.
