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.

This is a fabulous way to cook green beans. I used Italian flat green beans that I got from the Farmer's Market. The mild flavor of the beans went very well with the other vegetables and Italian seasonings. Thanks for sharing this as my whole family enjoyed it.
