      These are GREAT! I used frozen green beans because I didn't have canned. I also used dried basil and added it with the salt and pepper. Best green beans I have had in a long time. Frozen beans turned out crispy, not soft like canned.

      So simple yet so good. I didn't add the basil at the end as I forgot. This was so easy to make. Hubby even asked for more and they were all gone. We love green beans and this is just another way for us to enjoy them.

      Made for LET'S P-A-R-T-Y DECEMBER (09) COOKING EVENT and so glad I did. Canned beans can be so boring (at least the way I cook them). What a pleasant taste. DH really likes green beans and, I kid you not, had three helpings! I told him to slow down because I needed to eat some in order to review!! We had them with Baked Rigatoni which was also made for the P-A-R-T-Y. Really complimented the main dish. Thanks for the nifty idea.
