Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Trim haricot verts or tender young green beans. If desired, halve haricot verts or green beans. In a covered large saucepan, cook beans in a small amount boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain and set aside. (Or, use two 16-ounce packages frozen French-style green beans, cooked according to package directions.)

  • In another large saucepan, combine cut-up reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), fat-free milk, garlic, minced and ground black pepper. Cook over low heat until melted and smooth, whisking constantly; remove from heat. Whisk in light dairy sour cream. Add green beans; toss to coat.

  • Spread green bean mixture in a 2-quart au gratin dish or rectangular baking dish. Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until heated through, stirring once halfway through baking.
