May I add my 2 cents? Simply delicious! I used fresh french green beans and followed the recipe exactly except...cooked the green beans until just barely tender. Then put them in with the onions, garlic, butter. Served with Cait's Mom's Chicken Mamma Mia #149892. Wonderful meal!

These beans are really addictive! I also boiled them a bit before adding to the onion/garlic mixture. The flavor was wonderful. I will definitely make these again.

I couldn't stop eating these incredibly beans, Luby! I took Bergy's lead and began this recipe by steaming my fresh green beans to fork tender. We like our beans a little more done than crispy. I used olive oil for the sauté and everything else was as you instructed for a terrific vegetable dish! The taste of the onion and garlic just made these beans.

Oh, Yum!! This little dish is a great side. Sooo simple, yet sooo tasty!! Followed your easy directions, using one can of green beans. This went really well with round steak. We'll be doing this one again! Thanks, Luby ... Tis a winner, indeed! Laudee

This was a good recipe. The only change I did was I toasted my almonds and set them aside and then made the recipe! This is a keeper!

This is so quick and easy to put together and looks so impressive. The flavor is outstanding. (I might add a bit more garlic next time, but that is just a personal preference.) Luby, hats off to you for this wonderful recipe!

These green beans are a great side dish. I keep slivered almonds in my freezer when I make these. All you have to do is remove them from the freezer and add them the last few minutes to the green beans. I add 1 Tablespoon of already crushed garlic and omit the onion.

This was a great but simple twist to the green bean. My family loved it. One thing to consider when cooking the beans is how long. If you cook them till its hot in the center as the recipe states the beans will be crunchy. I had mixed likes with my group. Some wanted the beans a little more cooked. But great either way!

Easy-produces a bean dish that still has some crunch to it.Started off with fresh beans. I added 2 oz of water to the pan after I put in the beans & covered it to allow the beans to steam for about 3 minutes. I used this years' fresh garlic - it has such a fresh flavor. The parmesan just gives the final flavor touch. Thanks Luby for a real beano!
