In trying to lighten up this year, I tried this recipe. It was very good and received many compliments. The fresh green beans and mushrooms added both color and enhanced taste. This is definitely a "keeper".

Excellent substitution for the classic green bean casserole we grew up with. Fresh and light; I will be making this again soon!

Much better than the traditional, Campbells soup green bean casserole, but it still fell short for me. I was hoping this freshened up version would be tastier.

Much, much better than the traditional version with the canned green beans. The secret to keeping it fresh-tasting is to not overcook the green beans or the mushrooms: keep the fresh texture and flavor.

I made this last year for Thanksgiving. I made the mistake of stirring the panko and onions so they were a bit soggy. It was still really good and I plan on making this dish again this year but I won't stir.

This was disappointing. I loved the idea of fresh green beans for a fresher taste and crunchy texture, but the sauce was so boring--and definitely not worth all that stirring. It made me wish I had just steamed the beans and sauteed with mushrooms instead of going through all of this. That being said, it looked lovely in the casserole pan. I was very excited to taste it when it came out, but alas... I dare to say I'd rather splurge and have the fattier old comfort food taste of the Campbell's original.
