This is a delicious green bean dish that my family always serves with Thanksgiving Dinner. Guaranteed to be a hit with the family. A great alternative to plain old green beans or green bean casserole.

This was great! I did not drain either of the beans and it cooked down nicely and so full of flavor. I think I had it on a rolling boil for 25 min. I fixed this for Worldwide Recipezaar Day on 2-10-02.

This was so yummy. I hosted a "Mardi Gras" dinner and this is one of the dishes I had someone make. It was wonderful. Almost a sweet flavor. Will keep this recipe to make again. Thanks for sharing.
