Green Bean Casserole
2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed and halved
1 cup chicken stock
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 yellow onion, minced
8 oz button mushrooms, slices
16 oz shredded mozzarella
1 cup heavy cream
¼ cup River House Parmesan Herb
1. Clean and blanch green beans. Trim the ends of the green beans and cut in half. In a large pot boil water with a generous amount of salt. Prepare a strainer in the sink and a bowl of ice water. Once the water is rapidly boiling, add the green beans for 30 - 45 seconds and immediately strain and add to ice water. Once cool remove from ice water.

Add mushrooms and stir occasionally until tender, season with salt + pepper.
