  • Drain noodles. Serve topped with bean mixture.

When I came across this recipe, I also found the recipe for perfect grilled chicken using the sun-dried tomato dressing. My family loves casseroles so I made both recipes--cut up the chicken and added it to the green beans and bacon. I didn't discard the the leftover dressing from grilling the chicken--I added it to my new casserole and heated it through. I also added about 1/4 cup more dressing.We like it a lot better this way.

My DH said I'd have to make it again sometime soon. I substituted a few tablespoons of imitation bacon bits and added some extra dressing after I added the greenbeans to the onions to give it all more flavor. I'm glad I have frozen green beans left over from making it so that I can make it again here in a few weeks. It was so delicious.

It is very easy to make. This is a wonderful change to what veggie can I get the kids to eat tonight. Most kids like pasta so this was a winner with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved this. We loved this. I used sliced Polska Kielbasa for the meat, then a packet of cooked Ramen noodles stirred in for the pasta and the seasoning packet for added flavor. A great use for green beans from the garden. Wow! if one could use 6 stars I would.

In the end, I was truly amazed by how tasty (and especially easy) this recipe was! Since it's a great way to sneak in some veggies for my pasta-loving husband, it's a win-win in my book.

I substituted the dressing with a home-made version where I mixed Olive oil, Balsamic Vinegar and Honey Mustard. The honey complemented the sugar-cured bacon I used. These were the best green beans I have ever had and my family agreed!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good. Very Good. I used turkey bacon that I cooked with the onions. I added a little more dressing and some pasta water with the green beans to cook them a little more. Great flavor. Great way to use up all those home grown green beans!
