2 14-ounce cans french cut green beans, drained well *
4 ounce can mushrooms, drained well
1 small onion, sliced into very thin rings, 2 1/2 ounces
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded

Sauté the onion, celery and mushrooms in the butter until very soft and a little browned, about 20 minutes. Combine all of the ingredients in a greased 1 1/2 quart casserole or 8×8″ baking pan. Bake at 350º, uncovered, 30 minutes or until nicely browned and bubbly. Or, microwave on 50% power, loosely covered, about 30 minutes, turning down to LOW if it starts to get too brown.

Makes 6-8 servings
Can be frozen

* You can use a 16 ounce bag of frozen green beans. Cook them according to the package and drain well. See my comments below.
