Ribs and a Corn 'n' Green Bean Casserole

Okay, today hubby smoked some ribs and I made this Corn 'n' Green Bean Bake to go with the ribs. Figured we only needed the one dish to cover vegetable and starch with the meal.

I did not have the celery as it went limp before I could use it, but it was good...I used the Greek yogurt that is the strained yogurt and is only 2% fat. This was very tasty and reminded me of that Veg-all casserole that is so popular.

It is another Light & Tasty recipe...

 Makeover Corn 'n' Green Bean Bake
The result of our makeover is a delicious, creamy, cheesy casserole perfect for any night of the year. While the original is so decadent that you might make it only for those really special occasions, the Makeover Corn 'n' Green Bean Bake is great year round, yet tasty enough for those festive times, too.
