This recipe was good and easy to make, but not a match for the green beans amandine I usually make.

This is very good. I didn't have any pecans, so I substituted walnuts. Since I'm on a low carb diet, I substituted Splenda for the sugar. I also sauteed some red & yellow bell pepper & a little purple onion in the melted butter. It was wonderful. I will certainly prepare this again. Thanks for posting.
