“When we were stationed in the Philippines a friend added water chestnuts to the green bean casserole and I have added them ever since. I have changed the recipe even more to make it "More Diet Friendly" - with no canned Cream of Mushroom Soup - if it seems a little dry - add a little water to make "gravy".”
