This dish is so full of Win. Wow. I halved the recipe, used less olive oil than called for (just eye-balled it) and used a can of green beans in place of fresh (given more time I'd used fresh, but I don't think canned hurt the dish at all) so it didn't even take the predicted 36 minutes to make. Fast is great, but more importantly: healthy and delicious. Definitely on the week night docket. Thanks!
