Wonderful combination of flavors! I didn't have shallots, so I used a red onion instead.

An AMAZING side dish. It is as tasty as it is gorgeous on the plate! Delicious, quick & easy! The shallot butter can be made the day ahead and reheated. I bought my green beans in a steamer bag. I served at Thanksgiving and will make again & again. My GF passed this along to me. Glad to see it here! Thanks GaylaJ!

Yum! Even my grandkids loved them! I prepped and cooked the greenbeans the day before. Just sauted the beans in a large skillet with a little butter to rewarm them as the shallots were cooking. Time-saver when having company.

Tangy, lowfat side dish that's delicious and beautiful. I bought a huge bag of shallots at Costco and was glad, one cup is a lot of shallots! I like to balance heavier holiday foods with lighter selections, and this is a perfect side dish for a Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey. Gotta love Cooking Light..this beats the heck out of the nasty old green bean casserole..blech! Thanks for sharing the recipe, GaylaJ!

I made these for Thanksgiving and the whole family loved the flavor. I think they are best served hot so the sauce is smooth.

Funny because i just made this over the weekend, and thought of putting it on Zaar because it was so tasty, but it already is! Great way to make Green Beans, i used scallions instead of shallots, tasted yummy!
