"Have made this a couple of times and liked it very much. Used a cheese sauce instead of the cheese spread because of cost and it is a little thick w/ the spread. Added a touch of garlic powder, too. Thanks Pat, even my husband raves about it and he isn't big on green beans."

"Eh, I just wasn't digging this recipe. It really sounded like it would turn out tasty, but it fell short of my expectations. I made it for Thanksgiving, and it was the only thing that we didn't finish off with the left overs... I ended up having to throw most of it away."

"I have made this recipe every Thanksgiving for 10 years! My husband loves the hint of hot pepper, sauteed mushrooms & water chestnuts. Definitely better than the "other" green bean bake!"
