Wash the mushrooms and pat dry. You can remove the insides with a spoon if you prefer.  Drain and rinse the kidney beans and green beans.

Pre-heat the oven to 350*F.

Slice the mushrooms into thick strips about 1 inch.

In a 9 x 13  glass baking dish, add the kidney beans and green beans, and add  2 tbsp. of water. Lay the mushrooms on top, drizzle a little olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste.

Bake  15 minutes, stir well to let the liquid absorb better with the mushrooms, and bake an additional 10-15 minutes.  Chop the fresh basil leaves and add to mix with walnuts. Lightly toss and enjoy.
