Very tasty, and a nice change from plain green beans! Tagged for Rookie Recipes, due 01/26/14.

Perfect recipe!!! Easy and delicious. I used a Tupperware steamer in the microwave instead of boiling the green beans and then followed the recipe. A new favorite! Thanks Ellie.

Loved these. I didn't add the butter- just used the olive oil and they were still very tasty. I love garlic and I love green beans and they taste great together. I did use canned green beans as I didn't have fresh. Will make more often.
