Bobby’s Lighter Green Bean Casserole

Ingredients:
1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces   (about 3 cups)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 (8-ounce) package mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 onion, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon The Lady’s House Seasoning
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can fat-free cream of mushroom soup
3/4 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup french-fried onion rings  
Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 1 1/2 quart baking dish with nonstick spray.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about 6 minutes. Drain.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the mushrooms, onion, and Seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms and onion are very tender, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cooked beans, soup, milk, 1/4 cup onion rings, and 1/4 cup cheese; toss to mix well. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup onion rings and 1/4 cup cheese. Bake, uncovered, until the filling is hot and bubbly, about 25 minutes.

I just came across these lighter recipes and am very excited to start trying some. Am new to traditional American classics like Green bean Casserole, so thinking to alter a bit and try with broccoli.

Looking forward to you continuing to lighten up some of the dishes.

Best wishes

Paula, I’ve been watching your cooking shows for a very long time and I’ve always enjoyed the boys! I make a mean Red Velvet cake, but its high in calories & since I’m watching my wt. I need a low calorie Red Velvet recipe. This lighter version sounds very good and I will use this weekend.

Thanks Paula & Bobbie

I love all your recipes, I have not made all of them but I would if I made all of them. Anyway, some of them call for your own special seasoning and I do not have access to that and sometimes cannot afford the ones that I have seen?

What do you recommend?

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
