I made adaptations to your recipe, but loved the result. I cooked the bacon (5 strips) in the microwave on paper towels. I used one 14oz can of wax beans and one 14oz can of cut green beans for color variation and I did everything on the stovetop. I added everything except the almonds and heated. The almonds were added before serving. It was quick, very tasty, and a recipe I would use again. Thank you for the idea and inspiration!
