Dressed up Italian Green Beans

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by yooper

Green beans were never a favorite vegetable of mine, until I tasted this version of them. Try to use fresh green beans, but frozen will work in a pinch. This is wonderful with asparagus also!


This is a tantalizing inexpensive sidedish that works well for potluck suppers and for company dinners. A little roasted garlic "kicked it up" for my family.
