DELICIOUS!!!  I was never a fan of mushrooms really but this Thanksgiving I wanted to make green bean casserole for the first time and everyone thought it was fantastic!  Thank you so much for this recipe, it is going into my meal repertoire.


This is really simple to make. I modified it by using olive oil instead of the marg. I wasn't really sure how many lbs=cups I need to use, so I used 1cup of cashews.  End result was great!
