Extremely tasty side dish and a great way to get people to eat their beans! This recipe is so flexible. I've seen others add garlic powder, and some add the cooking wine to the cheese while microwaving, using less white wine.

My wife and I both loved this recipe. I made quite a few changes: I used fresh string beans instead of canned. I also cooked the garlic in with the water and wine, making sure not to lose any when draining. And I used Havarti instead of cheddar and also skipped the microwave. I think the Havarti was a nice compliment and made for a more 'delicate' recipe.


These were pretty good. I did make a few changes, such as adding the garlic to the wine and bean mixture. I also added some onion salt to the wine/bean/garlic mixture. Finally, I put the cheese on top of the beans without microwaving. It still melted, and eliminated another dish to wash!!!


Pretty tasty with the wine. I would rather have white cheese on top like moz or feta crumbled over it.
