This recipe was published on the WW site last year. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone loved it. According to WW, a 3/4 cup serving is 1 point. Prep time includes snapping the fresh green beans. If you're faster than me or you're using frozen green beans, it won't take as long. For variety, you can substitute pine nuts for the almonds. Toast the pine nuts the same as the almonds.
