Wish I knew where I got this recipe! Smells great while cooking. I will try to use something to make it easier to remove the red pepper flakes (maybe strain it carefully into another pan). I use nice pinch of salt and about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. black pepper.

These beans are totally sizzling. Definitely worth the little extra work. I cut down most of the cooking times in half and it suited our tastes perfectly. Thank you for helping us bring this ordinary vegetable to extraordinary heights.
