Yellow Wax Bean Casserole

Pat Duran


A new and tasty holiday idea in place of the green bean casserole.
This recipe incorporates many of the ingredients in the traditional green bean casserole using fresh mushrooms and making my own sauce with a tasty new twist.
My family loves this new recipe. I hope yo enjoy it too.
This can be made ahead and heated in the microwave or in the oven next to the turkey...
