Every time I bring this to a covered-dish gathering, everyone raves about it. My grandmother, Sarah, created this.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Green bean casserole is a must on any holiday table, but this version is different than the one on the soup can. It's a pleasantly delicious spin on a classic recipe. There's no canned soup in this recipe so it's not creamy like a traditional casserole. We liked the savory flavor from the artichokes and the crunchiness of the bread crumbs on top. If you're looking for a new holiday side dish, give this a try.

How To Make italian green bean casserole

Test Kitchen Tips
We did sprinkle a little extra cheese and bread crumbs over the top of the casserole before baking.
  • Cans of green beans poured into a baking dish.
    Dump green beans (cut or french style)into 13X9 in. pan.
  • Chopped artichokes added to green beans.
    Finely chop artichoke hearts (I use quartered) and add to green beans.
  • Bread crumbs sprinkled over vegetables.
    Sprinkle bread crumbs over vegetables.
  • Cheese, garlic powder, and salt sprinkled on top.
    Next add cheese, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Oil added and ingredients mixed together.
    Pour oil all over and mix thoroughly. Taste to see if you need to add more cheese, garlic powder or salt. If it looks too dry, add a little more oil. If it's too wet, add more bread crumbs. I don't use a recipe so you can adjust it to your taste.
  • Green bean casserole baking in the oven.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, until golden brown. This is delicious either hot or at room temperature.
