Great flavor! Really different than the majority of bean recipes we've tried. We will be making this one again.

I loved the flavor, but than again one of my all time favorite herbs is thyme! Will be making this recipe often especially in the summer when my fresh green beans from my garden will be plentiful. Made for Veg 'N Swap tag 2-2012.

I love balsamic vinegar and knew this would be enjoyed. This is so quick to make and even allows for blanching the beans prior to the main meal and finishing them off just before serving. I can see me making this one again. Made for Zaar Starz.
