This is a great way to serve green beans! We loved the mix of cheese and spices with the milk. I had slices of swiss cheese, so used that instead of grated cheese. Thanks Susie!

What a tasty sauce!! I made the mistake of trying to rush this recipe through and didn't allow the sauce to thicken quite as much as I should have. I used a little less than 1lb fresh green beans and sliced swiss cheese instead of grated...we'll be sure to work this into our regular rotation.
