This is just beautiful! I cooked as directed, but found I needed more time to get my green beans crisp tender. As posted, I found it a little bland, so I added some salt and pepper. I used pecans instead of walnuts, my preference. Loved the addition of the nuts....they are what made this dish! Thanks for sharing!
