Here is a good marriage between green beans and mushrooms.  I love mushrooms with parsley, so added that as well.  These green beans were great...not too many strings.  I always remove those.  Typically, I like to buy the long green beans, as there are no strings attached!  Sounds funny, but you know what I mean; much less work!

1 lb fresh mushrooms, sliced (0.45 kg)
2 tbsp bacon fat (30 mL)
1 lb green beans, cooked (0.45 kg)
1/tsp seasoning salt (2 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (1 mL)
1 cup chopped, flat leaf parsley (250 mL)
4 oz cream cheese (125 g)
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (30 mL)
1/cup grated Monterey Jack cheese (125 mL)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

In nonstick frying pan, over medium heat, cook mushrooms a few minutes in hot bacon fat, tossing to coat.  Place lid on pan (slightly ajar).  Cook a few more minutes until water releases.  Sprinkle with seasoning salt and pepper, tossing to coat. Add parsley on top. Continue to cook with lid slightly off pan and when a small amount of water remains, add cooked green beans, cream cheese and Parmesan; toss.  Cook until cream cheese has melted.  Pour into a 1 qt (1 L) casserole dish.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Bake 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
