    ellie_'s Note:

    This sounds similar to my mom's green bean casserole but a healthier version and quicker too as it is cooked in a skillet instead of the oven. Recipe source: Cook's Illustrated

      This was a big hit. I used sugar snap peas instead of green beans (personal preference). I've never had Green Bean Casserole, but am glad I tried this!

      I like this version of green bean casserole because it doesn't use the "cream of" soup or the french fried onions. In my opinion, this one is much better and I will use it often. I added chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. Great flavor!
