After trying Evie*'s Pumpkin and Sage Risotto, I have gotten hooked on fresh sage. This recipe is from Southern Living. I made it over the holidays and I really liked it.

I didn't have fresh sage, so I just used dried and the outcome was still very good. I also reduced the oil/butter mixture by half and I'm glad I did because it was just right. Thank you.

LOVE this!! DH does not like fresh green beans (what a weirdo, teehee) but he gave this recipe a double thumbs up! That is a keeper in my book!
