Barbara, what can I say...other than what a great way to cook fresh green beans! I squeezed just a little of the fresh lemon juice in my butter sauce. Simple and tasty! Great!
Easy and delicious side dish. I put too much oregano in, but that was my fault for not measuring - but it was still very good. Definate keeper !
These made a nice quick side dish. I quartered the butter, and also added lemon juice. Served 4-5.
