Karen this was simply delicious! I love bleu cheese dishes so I increased the bleu cheese to 1 cup. Everyone loved it. Like you said, a nice change from basic green beans! I'll definately be making this again! Thanks!
Great recipe. We will be making this monthly, if not weekly, for sure. The only changes I made were to add more red peppers and finish it off with the foil off. I like my breadcrumbs toasty and brown. Please make and enjoy!
