Creamy Green Beans and Potatoes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mersaydees

A recipe I really liked based on one from JoAnna Lund's Cooking Healthy with Splenda. So, you can substitute Splenda back in if you so desire. JoAnna's hint: "Thaw green beans by placing in a colander and rinsing under hot water for 1 minute."

We didn't like this recipe at all. I think that if I would've left out the sugar it might've been better. It got really thick towards the end of making it.
