Grande Green Beans
Best of Healthy Exchanges Newsletter (1992) p.76
A woman wrote me to share that her husband said he didn't know green beans could taste this good!
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cups frozen French style green beans
1/8 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/2 cup (one 2.5-ounce jar) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) shredded Kraft reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
In a medium saucepan sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, saute onion for 5 minutes or until tender. Add frozen green beans and lemon pepper. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until beans are thawed and separated, stirring occasionally. Stir in mushrooms. Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until beans are just tender, stirring often. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese evenly over top. Cover and let set 1 minute. Gently stir again just before serving.
