Found some beautiful green beans at the farmer's market that I couldn't pass up, and this was a very tasty way to show off their goodness. I cooked the green beans in the microwave until crisp-tender, then followed the rest of the recipe. Very enjoyable.

Used fresh green beans, steamed in my vegetable steamer for about 15 minutes and they were perfectly tender, but not mushy. Delicious piquant flavor and something very different for us. Loved it. Thanks Parsley :-)

Yum! A great change from my usual garlic/parmesan/lemon juice green beans. I used frozen beans and served them with ham (#103360) and applesauce.
