  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray to prevent sticking.

  4. Saute Onions and Garlic: In the same frying pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add chopped onions and minced garlic. Cook until the onions are translucent. Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes, then add it to the baggie with the seasoned potatoes.
  5. Combine Ingredients: Add the cooked sausage to the baggie as well, then shake to mix all ingredients. Finally, add the drained green beans to the baggie, shake again to mix, and empty the contents into the prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake: Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  7. Serve: Carefully remove from the oven and serve hot. Enjoy this delicious and comforting casserole with your loved ones!
