So awesome! I steamed the beans in the microwave instead of a pot. The garlic was to die for and the rosemary was a nice compliment (I only had dried crushed though.) Thanks for posting this!

This was delicious! I only had 3/4 lb. of green beans, but kept everything else the same. I thought that the garlic might be overpowering, but it was great! I would suggest sprinkling the salt & pepper over the green beans after they have been added to the pan then re-tossing because it helps to disperse the spices more evenly (found that out a little too late, lol!)

Incredible! Think I might use more rosemary next time though. Really nice and light way to make green beans for a lot of people. Thanks!
