Recipe by Hey Jude

A quick, tasty recipe. The almonds pick up a mild garlic flavor. This is really good with super fresh, right out of the garden, green beans!

This recipe is simple to make, and the flavor is fantastic! We made it for 15 people on Easter and everyone loved it--even the kids! Thanks Hey Jude.
