      DELICIOUS! Not only did this dish look amazing but it tasted the same. I cut the recipe in half to suit my needs, but that was it. Loved them. Thanks!

      I made these green beans for my boyfriend, who doesn't eat green beans and both he and I thought they were absolutely fantastic! They were beautiful, very tasty and easy to make. If you have time to prepare the veggies, these are a must!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe! ... since I first rated these, I made them for a holiday gathering, and am always asked to bring them for every holiday or potluck. They are amazing! I do add extra almonds, because my husband loves them :)

      I love green beans and usually eat them bare with a little salt...but this recipe dresses them to perfection. I made half the recipe for my pound of beans, and used dried herbs with really good results. I'll probably never serve a naked bean again. BTW...this method of boiling the vegetable, then immersing it in cold water to stop the cooking, and finally warming it later in your sauce or butter is how I make almost all my veggies. It keeps them nice and tender crisp. Good recipe, Rita.
