I like unpeeled potatoes whenever possible, so used new potatoes here, as well as about 1 1/2 pounds of fresh green beans! I steamed the beans & potatoes until almost done, then went on to step 4! This very tasty side casserole was enough for 2 of us for three meals! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
Very Good. I used red new potatoes because that's what I had on hand. I cooked them in the micro-wave 8 min. then quartered them. My picky eater (DH) said he really liked the dish. I will be makeing this again for him.
I really liked this dish!! I used fresh green beans and next time will boil or steam them a little first so they are less crunchy. I cut the recipe in half since it is just DH and I that ate it. Was very creamy with the soup and cheeses. Will make again sine it was fairly quick and really easy. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.
This is one easy and delicious side dish or meatless main meal. Actually, my meal wasn't meatless since I served this as the main dish with corn dog muffins. I did make one booboo, but the dish(at least in my opinion) did not suffer in the least for it. I unintentionally added an extra can of green beans, then added a bit more cheese to compensate for my error. The sauce was perfect, and probably would have been even without the extra cheese. I also did the whole thing in the micro.....cooked red potatoes in the micro for 8 mins, then diced and added unpeeled to the dish according to directions. For anyone wanting to prepare this in the summer without heating up the house, the micro worked perfectly. I put the whole casserole(at room temp) back into the micro for 10 mins to finish the cooking. I think when tomatoes finally come into season, I'll try this with a large, firm tomato diced and added. I added a good bit of fresh black pepper, but left out the salt, since the recipe has tons of sodium anyway.....perhaps sodium free green beans would help a bit. Anyway, there is no way to go wrong with this dish, and it'll get a lot of re-makes here! Even without the addition of the extra beans, I think there are more like 5-6 servings here. That would also effect the nutrition facts.....lowering them across the board. Thanks for sharing!
