Entered for safe-keeping for ZWT5. From Fine Cooking magazine, June/July 2009. I can't wait to try this! More goat cheese may be added, if you like.

Love haricots verts and the toasted walnuts were wonderful in this recipe. Although I love chevre, I think I'd cut back on the amount so the other flavors can shine through. Made for ZWT8. Thanks for sharing!
