Green Bean Compromise

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by ThatBobbieGirl

I don't know about you, but I really don't care much for plain old canned green beans. To make things more difficult, my family doesn't care for fresh or frozen green beans at ALL. We had to make a compromise. Here's what I do to please everyone; it has a bit of an Italian flair. I created this to go with Angel Hair with Balsamic Tomatoes, which it complements nicely. It has the added bonus of making canned green beans edible!

I tried this, substituting just a pinch of garlic powder for the cloves. just because that's the way I am...and it was really good! We only use canned green beans in this house.....too many memories of the summer job on the bean farm to look at fresh green beans! My family also likes green beans that have been cooked in chicken bullion broth. It really adds alot of flavor!
