Lighter Green Bean Casserole

Tonia Bloom
Recipe adapted from Marlene Koch's book "Eat What You Love Everyday".
My family prefers this healthier green bean casserole over the traditional one we all grew up with. This lighter green bean casserole includes fresh mushrooms and reduces the fat by using fat-free half and half and reduced fat soup.
