    Leslulu's Note:

    When our beautiful son was young, he would eat peas, broccoli, etc. When he turned 13 years old he became convinced that "green" anything was just too "gross." This recipe is one of the few he will eat that is not fried to a crisp. My DH and I love it too! Season to your taste...i.e. salt and pepper.

      This was very tasty and easy to prepare. I used frozen haricot vert and prepared as directed. I do think that FRESH beans react differently from frozen, thus would be a tad more crisp. Thanks for posting, Leslulu

      This is a perfect dish if you want a "fancy" vegetable on a busy week night. It comes together very quickly, and has a great combination of flavors. They don't smother the green beans; the flavor of the beans really shines through. Delish! Thank you for posting! Reviewed for PAC - Fall '08.
