You have hit it out of "The Park"with this recipe! Outstanding taste and very easy. I used fresh Haricots Verts from Sam's Club and steamed them for 3 min. on high in a steaming bag. Perfect. Since I was feeding 16 I used both bags. (2 lbs) but did not change any of the other ingredients. I did add some Kosher salt. They were sooo good even before baking, that I realy think they do not need the baking. Thanks for my new favorite company recipe.

This was a little too rich for our tastes. I even used low fat parmesan and turkey bacon. I felt like the other ingredients overwhelmed my fresh green beans. Made for 2009 Fall PAC.
