Grandma Farfaglia's Green Beans

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Pooh Bear

Angela has long passed but her beans lived on. I make these when I'm tired of the same old side dish or lollygag too much & it's time for dinner. These are also good at room temperature which is good for potlucks.

A great way to fancy up some frozen green beans. I also used a little salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of dried dill. This was an excellent side for meatloaf and noodles. Thanks for posting Pooh Bear. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
