Steamed green beans tossed in a homemade Caesar vinaigrette and baked until hot, this is a lighter twist to the normal holiday side dish!






In our family, there is usually no less than 10 people for Thanksgiving, and most years usually close to 15 people. We all gather at my mom and dad's house for, what essentially is, a day-long feast! There absolutely has to be appetizers and snacks out at all times. After all that cooking, you can really work up an appetite!

Then when dinner rolls around, we have multiple side dishes, which in and of themselves would be a main dish most regular nights to be honest. In recent years, we moved from not one, but two main dishes. The turkey is just not enough for our crazy, food-loving family!

It's really genius to have a second main dish ready for your gathering, especially if you're expecting a larger crowd. Inevitably you'll have someone who isn't turkey obsessed like the rest of us. Plus, in the event that something crazy happens and there's a turkey catastrophe, you have a backup. For us, it's usually something Italian - a pan of baked ziti or lasagna fits the bill! 






This yummy Caesar Green Bean Casserole is an amazing side dish to your Thanksgiving dinner and pairs wonderfully with both turkey and lasagna. The traditional green bean casserole can be quite heavy, so this is a nice twist!



Caesar Green Bean Casserole

These green beans are really amazing - you'll have no problem getting the kids to eat their veggies with this one!






I think this year we'll prepare one of NESTLE® STOUFFER'S® Family Size Entrees as our other main dish this year for Thanksgiving - it went wonderfully with the Caesar Green Bean Casserole and it was SUPER easy! You can easily find it in the frozen section of your local Walmart.






Such a great solution to feed your family this busy holiday season. Plus, the Lasagna Family Size is on rollback at Walmart through 12/31! There are lots more recipe pairings on the Flavorful Moments Pinterest Board - be sure to check that out!
