Tasty and simple. I used fresh green beans from Trader Joes that came in a microwaveable bag. I microwaved them, then added them to a pot with the rest of the recipe ingredients, as directed. I grated in some fresh Parmesan cheese at the end of the heating time too. Very nice; will make again!

I made a test batch using one can of green beans tonight to see if they might work for Bunko Christmas Dinner tomorrow night. Wow! These are wonderful. I could have eaten the whole can by myself they are so good. However, I didn't because my husband loves them too. Will be using as a side-dish at Bunko for sure. Thanks so much!
