4 cups celery diced
1/4 cup almonds slivered
1/2 cup water chestnut sliced
5 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup chicken broth (either canned or made with chicken stock base)
3/4 cup half and half
1/2 cup mushrooms canned
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs dry


Parboil the celery for 5 minutes. It should still be rather crisp. Drain and put in a baking dish with almonds and water chestnuts. Melt 3 tablespoons butter, add the flour, stir and cook for a few minutes over low heat. Slowly stir in broth and half and half. Simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms to sauce, then pour over celery. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, dot with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, then top with the bread crumbs. Bake at 350° until bubbly.
