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.

PAULA SO HAPPY YOU ARE BACK YOU & YOUR FAMILY ARE AWESOME LOVE YOUR RECIPES MORE DIABETIC RECIPES PLEASE THANK YOU

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?
