 Green Bean & Walnut Casserole Recipe
Looking for a super easy vegetable side dish that can be prepared ahead of time and then popped into the oven right before dinner? I know I always am.

I get in such a dinner rut and find myself cooking the same vegetable side dishes day after day.

Dinner gets boring.

And since I’m not the biggest vegetable fan I’m always looking for great recipes that convince me that vegetables aren’t all that bad.

This green bean casserole recipe is one of my favourites.

I love it because I can prepare it when my youngest son is napping. Right before dinner I can just pop it in the oven. I try to do all my dinner prep during nap time, since that hour or two right before dinner is always so crazy in my house.

  1. Looks really good. I had green and yellow beens for dinner last night but I just boiled them. Next time I will try this recipe.
