This was awesome. My DH and I gobbled it up, my DD ate everything but the green beans (go figure) and my DS ate 2 tomatoes and 3 mushrooms. Which leads me to a few changes that I made. I had 1/2 lb of mushrooms laying around so I sauteed them in 1 TBSP of butter for 10 min. and threw them into step 7. I didn't put any butter on top and sprayed the pan with nonstick spray. I love the taste of EVOO so I put all 3 TBSP in. It was a little "greasy"...just how I like it!

My family thought this was just OK. Based on other reviews, I used only 1/2 the amout of butter and olive oil. Thanks for posting!

This was way too greasy for us. And, we thought there was too much mozzarella which probably contributed to the problem. The tomatoes were a nice flavor addition though.

I have never written a review before, but when my husband claimed that "this was the best side dish he had ever eaten", I felt obligated to share our delight. I did start with top ingredients - orange cherries and beans from our garden, fresh basil from a neighbor and a very good Asiago that I happened to have in the fridge, which I used instead of the Parmigiano. Besides the Asiago modification, I did sneak in a few crushed garlic cloves in the water that I cooked the beans in, plus I added some freshly ground black pepper when I seasoned the hot beans. The dish came out wonderfully! Be aware though, it is sinfully rich! If I made it again, just for myself, I think I would use half the amount of oil and butter. However, now that my hubby has tasted the full flavor version, I don't think I can get away with this reduction!

A wonderful way to use green beans! I loved all the flavors. I served this with chia's easiest brisket and LonghornMama's Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Thanks so much for posting your secret recipe! Everybody should try this!
