This is a very good green bean recipe. Definitely something different. It reminded me a little of the traditional green bean casserole only a much lighter version. Not as much guilt attached to this. Thanks for the recipe.

Who would have thought that frozen green beans could taste so good? I am so glad I found this recipe.. paired good with pork chops and roasted butternut squash.. The only thing I changed was adding 3 cloves of chopped garlic towards the end of cooking the onions... I will make this one again for sure!

Very good. A nice, easy recipe with an attractive look when completed. A very good way to use frozen beans when fresh are unavailable. I enjoyed the breadc crumbs in this. Like the previous reviewers, I also felt it could use a bit more flavor - I think some fresh garlic would be nice in this.
