Here's another ROCKIN' holiday recipe from Hungry Girl! 
The holidays are here.  Know what that means?  It's green bean casserole time!  But did you know that even though the main ingredient in the classic dish is green beans, each serving can have about 250 - 300 calories and TONS of fat?  How can that be?  It's all those crazy canned fried onions that are crammed into and piled on top of the thing.  One little can of those crispy catastrophes has roughly 900 calories and 70 grams of fat!  Eeeks!  The good news is, with just a few easy swaps, you can make your own version of this holiday fave, for a fraction of the fat and calories.  Check out HG's NEW recipe and share it with everyone you know...
