I’m taking green bean casserole OFF the table this Thanksgiving and moving towards a gourmet and sophisticated dish: Green Beans in a Mascarpone Cream Sauce. 

Greens Bean in a Mascarpone Cream Sauce Recipe- Steamed green beans in a rich and creamy mascaprone cream sauce topped with sweet dried cranberries and crunchy sliced almonds.

Not only is the mascarpone cream sauce velvety and decadent on its own, dried cranberries add a hint of tart while sliced almonds add the texture. Green Beans in a Mascarpone Cream Sauce can be made ahead of time, just make the mascarpone cream sauce and reheat on the stove with a dab more milk to thin it out. Steamed up your greens beans and serve!

This was great! I didn’t have the dried cranberries, and I really think that they would add a nice sweetness. I’m making this again.
