Macaroni Green Beans Supreme

A follow up from my post yesterday on Mac and Cheese…My mom made a couple of great casseroles that I loved as a kid, a Monte Cristo something or other (need to find the recipe now that I have exceptional substitutions) and the following, Macaroni Green Beans Supreme. I am not sure the source of the recipe as it is at least 25 – 30 years old but over the years, my mom added a couple of cool tweaks of her own…The original recipe is in black, my mom’s add-in’s are in green and my gluten free tweaks are in red.  **Let me know if you like this format of posting recipes, I just want to show how I make modifications to regular recipes to make them gluten free, and thus encourage you to make simple modifications of your own to your family’s favorite recipes!**
