I saw this recipe in the Observer Food Monthly supplement and thought it looked so good that I had to post it here for safekeeping and to share.

This was sooo good. DH liked the green beans slightly crisp. I had to use plain green beans since our stores don't have French beans and I didn't grow Harcort Vert (sp?) this year. Next year...
