We always love green beens and your recipe as well. I roasted the cashews in a dry skillet and added then just before serving. I almost forgot the parsley, but I realized this just before serving!<br/>Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

This is so easy and delicious; what I'd expect at a fine restaurant. I made as directed using tri-colored beans from our local farmers' market. Thanks, PaulaG! Made for Aussie Kiwi Recipe Swap #79, Group 1.
