I have made this recipe for a couple of years now, this will be my third. Everyone loves this casserole and it is my go to dish for holidays. I use baby Portobello mushrooms and they turn out great. It is important to get the extra water out of the de-thawed green beans. I failed to do this the first time and the result, while tasted good was a little soupy. I use a salad spinner to get the water off of them.
My whole family loved this one! I really like the garlic in it. Yes, I'm a garlic head. lol The mushrooms adsorb the oil/butter as your cooking them. But once you reach the point that they become soft, they start releasing water. I could not find my can of soup w/roasted garlic so I used a can of golden mushroom soup. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I adopted this chef for the *Spring PAC 2008* game
