Shepherd's Bean Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
This comforting casserole is a variation on the traditional English pie. It is chock-full of fresh green and wax beans, carrots, cubed ham and a handful of crunchy almonds in a creamy Swiss cheese sauce. Topped with mashed potatoes, it makes a hearty side dish. -Karen Cleveland, Spring Valley, Minnesota
