Recipe by lesliecoy
When we were stationed in the Philippines a friend added water chestnuts to the green bean casserole and I have added them ever since. I have changed the recipe even more to make it "More Diet Friendly" - with no canned Cream of Mushroom Soup - if it seems a little dry - add a little water to make "gravy".
- 2 cups green beans
- 4 shallots, sliced
- 8 mushrooms, sliced
- 1 (5 ounce) can water chestnuts, sliced, drained
- 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- butter-flavored cooking spray, such as Pam

- Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.

- In the same skillet, brown the sliced mushrooms in butter spray.
