I'm only posting this recipe so I can have a copy of it just in case I write The Hippy in the Kitchen Cookbook!
It's pretty basic, but one of my favorite side dishes. I also love a good casserole recipe.
Green Bean and Tomato Casserole:
Here's what you'll need:

4 TBS Butter, divided
1 medium Sweet Onion, diced

4 oz. Cream Cheese, cubed
2 C Grape Tomatoes
In a small bowl:
2 TBS Parmesan Cheese
2 TBS Butter, melted.
Whisk well and set aside.
In a large skillet on medium heat:

Onion and saute for 5 minutes.
Stir to combine well.
Stir and cook until it begins to thicken.

Stir to mix well.
Pour into the Casserole Dish.

Peace in the Kitchen!
