Really delicious! My husband said these were the best green beans he'd ever eaten since they tasted nothing like green beans. Ha! I mistakenly stirred the Parmesan into the sauce with the Swiss but it was so good I'd do the same next time. Probably used more like 4 cups whole green beans. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
What a lovely change from traditional green bean casseroles. Loved the fact that it had a homemade cheese sauce and we really liked the topping as well. Now I will have a great alternative for my meals. This really hit the spot with your Lip Smacking Beef Short Ribs. All I can say is YUM! Made for Fall PAC, October, 2012.
DH wanted to give these green beans more then a five star review, he loved them. I used canned cut green beans, an italian blend shredded cheese that contained parmesan and packaged real bacon bits. I think this will be the go to green bean casserole now for us! Made and reviewed for ZWT 8 - 2012 The Fearless Red Dragons.
