Baked Sausage and Green Bean Alfredo

French green beans are thin beans. I like the Southern Selects brand that Sam's Club sells in 2-1lb. packs. They tend to be more affordable at Sam's versus grocery stores. Also, they are in a breathable cellophane package that keeps them fresh for a long time. If you can't find the fresh thin, French green beans, any other fresh will do, but they may need to cook a little longer is you like them relatively soft.

I also find the spinach/asiago cheese chicken sausage links at Sam's Club, but you could use another flavor of pre-cooked sausage that would lend itself to the alfredo sauce. If you have a favorite sausage that doesn't come pre-cooked, just cook separately prior to adding to sauce.

I made this for the first time last night. It was an experiment and our family loved it, so I thought I'd share. I'll try to remember to take a picture to upload next time, but I have to tell you, with the color of the veggies and all, it was a pretty dish too!
