  1. Really good and garlicky! A little too oily for me though. Next time I'll cut down on the butter/olive oil. The addition of parmesan was really delicious. Will make again! Made for I Recommend Tag.
  2. These are such a nice change of pace to just standard green beans. The garlic and parmesan cheese just was such a nice addition and really added to the meal. I used frozen green beans instead of canned as the only little change. Made for I Recommend Tag Game.
  3. I used frozen green beans, also and cut the recipe in half. Was very good. Made for I Recommend Tag Game 2010.
  4. The garlic butter really perked up canned green beans. I will add this recipe to my keeper file as I always have a can or two in the pantry.
  5. Made for I Recommend Tag. I can't say enough good things about this recipe and neither could DH. I didn't have canned green beans because I don't use them since I found some really good frozen baby green beans at Aldi. I cooked the green beans first and then added them to the garlic and butter/oil mixture and tossed them to coat the green beans. Will definitely make these again and again as they are a nice change to plain green beans. Thanks for posting this Lazyme!
