Test Procedure is the sequence in which the tests need to be carried out. (In Automation Tools, one can use batch procedures)

Test Case is a step that actually needs to be executed while testing. It comprises of a - test case id,
- a test case description,
- any pre-conditions or inputs,
- expected result,
- actual result,
- Status(Pass/Fail) and 
- Defects id column(if there is a defect found)

Test Procedure tells how testing can be carried out, test procedure is a part of test case, and Test case is a case with which we can test the functionality of an application.

A procedure simply refers to an established method of doing something.  I have heard he term test procedure used to mean the following things:

1) The documented activities a tester should follow in order to perform testing.

2) A document which describes how to manually execute a test suite of test cases.

3) The details found in a particular test case, including preconditions, test steps, expected and actual results, and pass/fail criteria.  (this usage is not as common)
