I love the lemon taste. It's wonderful. I had to omit the fresh basil cause it was 8 pm, too dark outside to go out to pick up fresh basil because of the spiders LOL It was yummy without it but I'll try with it next time. The honey gave just the right touch of sweetness. I used red bell pepper. Thanks Paula :) Made for I recommend tag game

So good! I used red peppers because it was for Christmas dinner and went a bit lighter on the basil (1/4 cup) but aside from that went right by the directions. They turned out perfectly and I love the addition of the lemon. A dish worthy of the expensive fresh green beans. On the other side of the table DH wouldn't touch them and DS took a spoonful and said very politely that he didn't care for them.........I get them all to myself! YAY. I think this is a dish best enjoyed by those who like stronger flavors and something a bit off the beaten track.

Perfect! I am so in love with this recipe! After zesting and juicing the lemon I just cut what was left into quarters and tossed that in with the greenbeans. Even though KelBel thought the lemon flavor was too strong, I thought it really enhanced the dish. The yellow bell peppers were superfluous, the recipe doesn't need them at all, except maybe for some color contrast, and if I were to make it again (which I will) with peppers, I would use red peppers for more contrast. Great recipe, it's going on weekly rotation.

These were okay. I'm not sure that I like lemon and basil together. I followed the recipe exactly, but I think the lemon was too strong a flavor. I don't think I'll make this again. Sorry.
