My whole family loves these! I substituted frozen green beans for fresh -- so good!

I also used 2 cans of green beans. This was a delightful change from the other various ways I usually fix green beans. Since my DH loves green beans I will enjoy having a new way to add to the list. This was the first time I had ever put nuts in green beans. I was also pleased that the amount of garlic used did not overpower the dish. Made for Spring PAC 2010
