Author's Notes

Saute the vegetables and blanch the green beans the day before to make cooking an ease. I recommend making the green beans the day of so they maintain their crispiness. Blanching the green beans will help to reserve their color and texture for the casserole. The onions will go FAST, so grab a helper and double the recipe if you'd like.
