Let’s say you want something different… it has to be easy, not fussy, it does have to be impressive, but the kids have gotta love it! Cheesy Crescent Wrapped Green Beans (or you fav veggie) will most certainly do the trick.
All you do is defrost the veggies, wrap a fresh green basil leaf around them, add some cheese, roll up in crescent dough, bake then serve warm with dinner.
Maybe veggies topped with a dreamy cheese sauce is more your style? If so, then we have the sauce for you… it takes 5 minutes! In the time you microwave, steam or sauté whatever veggies you’re using, the sauce will be done. You need these Green Beans with Cheesy Sauce in your life!
