This was quite good although I prefer boiling the green beans, draining them, then sauteeing them lightly in the butter and adding the almonds. Liked the hint of nutmeg in this recipe. I will use these ingredients again to make it my way. Thanks, Trisha.

Loved this recipe as I didn't need to use up more of my stove-top. The beans cooked perfectly in the time stated. I used butter in the dressing - a simply great complement to the beans! I also really enjoyed the slight nutmeg flavour. Toast the almonds first for added flavour.
