Cheesy Dill Green Beans with Bacon

I had a huge bag of fresh green beans just waiting to be used.  So I was trying to think of something other than the normal steam and eat preparation.  So I came up with a random concoction from some stuff I had around the kitchen, and it turned out so totally delish.  It's hearty & rich enough that we had this with our meat and that's all we needed for a complete meal.  

You Need:
1 lb fresh green beans(or frozen and thawed)
1/2 c greek dressing(I used gazebo room lite)
6 slices american cheese
1-2 tsp dill(depending on how dill-y you like things)
bacon bits(the real kind, not the hard crunchy ones)

Saute your green beans in a large pan with the dressing and a few tbsp water - cover and let steam/simmer for about 10 mins or until beans are tender.  Take lid off and let simmer for another 5 mins uncovered.  Add your cheese, dill and some salt & pepper.  Let the cheese melt and mix until combined.  
Serve topped with bacon bits.
These last remnants in the pan were actually the most delicious, they had lots of creamy sauce on them and they were perfect.  So I ate 'em.  If you don't know by now, I'm usually found hovering and eating my seconds straight from the pan.
