This recipe for green beans (or at least before I tweaked it!) was seen in the June/July 2010 issue of Taste of Home cooking magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put beans in a steamer & bring water to a boil, then steam 8 to 10 minutes or until just crisp tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the rest of the ingredients until butter is melted.
  3. Put beans in a serving bowl & drizzle them with the butter mixture, tossing to coat.

Definitely delicious! Used frozen green beans. Had ours with baked chicken, dressing, and mashed potatoes. Thanks Syd for a great dinner.

I give it a 5 but my family doesn't like lemon so I'll be eating this alone! Very simple to make. Thanks

Great beans! I used some fresh green beans that I had frozen and they still tasted fresh in this recipe. Loved the Italian seasoning and the blast of lemon zest. Thanks Syd for a nice keeper. Made for Best of 2012 Tag.
