I make this when I am on the fly (and sometimes when I'm not). Serve it with a salad and some garlic bread and you have a fast and tasty dinner. I can't remember where I got this recipe but I have been making it for a long time and it goes over really well in my house.
I have been using this recipe for ages. I found it in the newspaper years ago and I like to make it when I have company as a side dish with whatever else I happen to be making, i.e. steak, chicken or chops. If you're a garlic lover, then just crush the cloves into the beans rather than leaving them whole.
