OKRA CASSEROLE

This recipe is from a lady who lived in the small rural community where I attended school.

1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/3 cup margarine
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cup chopped tomatoes
1 1/4 cups sliced okra
4 slices American cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a casserole dish. Set aside.

In a 10-inch skillet, melt the margarine; saute onion and bell pepper until crisp tender. Stir the flour, salt, and pepper into the skillet mixture; blend well. Add the tomatoes and okra; stir to blend well. Spoon mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Top with the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.
