Green Bean Casserole with Tomatoes & Mozzarella Cheese

This is a nice variation to the Green Bean Casserole. It has a bit of a fresher, lighter feel than your traditional Green Bean Casserole (with cheese, heavy cream and sour cream don't ask me why, but it does). I tend to go a little heavier on the cream and sour cream to get slightly more sauce. (I found this recipe on the net at About.com).
