Saucy Green Bean Bake

Here's a different way to serve green beans. It's a nice change of pace from plain vegetables. —June Formanek, Belle Plaine, Iowa

    I liked this recipe. I was looking for something a little different from the normal green bean casserole. I did use cheddar cheese instead of the processed cheese it called for.
