Green beans recipe

This small container held the leftover beans from Haley's birthday dinner, which the three of us polished off last night:

Here is the recipe, for those who asked...or didn't ask. It is easy peasy, and oh so good:

Green beans with mushrooms and cheese

Total time - 20 minutes
12 servings

4 oz white Cheddar cheese, grated
2 lbs fresh green beans
½ medium onion, thinly sliced
1/4 c water
8 oz fresh pre-sliced baby portabella mushrooms
1/4 tsp pepper
4 oz lemon herb butter

Grate or cut cheese into small pieces
Trim beans
Slice onion (about 1 c)

Combine beans and water; microwave on HIGH 3-4 minutes or until tender. Drain beans.
In large sauté pan, add beans, mushrooms, onions, pepper and herb butter; cook and stir 2-3 minutes, or until onions begin to soften. Stir in cheese until melted.

Serve. Enjoy the rave reviews! And let me know if you try it.

What Lois said. I've copied the recipe and have given it to hubby. He agrees that this dish sounds very, very good. I'll let you know.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)

mmmmm, mmmmm, good! I can't make this for us because my Dad is not a cheese-person, but I may try it the next time we have a dinner gathering.

Big hugs xo

I did try it and can attest that it was delicious. Who around here carries lemon-herb butter, though? Next time I'm at Publix I'll have to look for some to keep around to make this!

Were I to leave the onions out, I bet I could even get Amanda to eat that - it looks delicious!
