Lightened Green Bean Casserole

classic thanksgiving dish, this replaces the heavy in fat cream of mushroom soup version. Ok, this is my recipe. I made it for Thanksgiving 2002 and I was also extremely disappointed. I originally got it from Cooking Light, and made it a few years ago. I loved it back then, but this year it just didn't work. Not sure what is wrong...

    I know that I did something wrong! The flavor was there but it was too "Gooey". Firstly I used fresh frenched beans instead of frozen. I think this took away some of the added moisture that would thin the cheese/onion sauce. I'll try again!

    Thanks for giving recipes for such good food. You saved my thanksgiving. My sister-in-laws and I are cooking dinner this year for thanksgiving. All of the older ladies have all died so it is up to us to get everyones belly full. Cooking for a big family requires lots of food. Good food. I am a good cook but some of the things I was asked to cook I have never cooked before. I needed help!!! And thanks to this wonderful site on my computer I got all the help I needed. I used many recipes and am very pleased with the outcome. The lightened green bean casserole was my favorite. All the other recipes I found other places where all very common. I suggest to everyone, if you have not tried this you really need to. It is very delicious. And also very good for you. Thanks again for my wonderful thanksgiving dinner. Your devoted cook, lynn
