    I found this recipe while surfing the web. It called for fresh; however, it being late in the season, fresh were not available so I used frozen.

      Absolutely delicious! There is something special about red potatoes and green beans. Add some garlic, basil, olive oil, chicken broth, salt and pepper and you can color me happy! I added the frozen green beans to the boiling potaotes for the last 3-4 minutes and drained them together. Yummy!!

      REALLY delicious. I have to admit I got confused about when to put in the garlic. Are you supposed to boil them with the potatoes? I didn't want raw garlic in there, so I just put in a bunch of garlic powder when I put in the basil. It was DELISH! Even my 2 year old had a serving. Thanks for sharing (and if you can, let me know what to do with that garlic!) THANKS!
