    This met mixed reviews in my household. I think maybe I should have added a bit of garlic like other reviewers suggested.

    YUM! So creaamy, good. This was easy, quick and tasted great! I added about 1/2 tsp of granulated garlic powder because I think garlic makes everything better. Never in a million years would I have thought to put cream cheese with green beans but it was so good. I will be making this regularly from now on. Made for PRMR tag game.

    Easy and quick green bean recipe that we enjoyed. I also used canned green beans instead of fresh. Let the cream cheese soften in my pan than whisked in the milk and seasonings. I used cut green beans but I think I would prefer to use french style next time. Thank you Syd for posting! Made and reviewed for the Vegetarian Forum's Recipe Swap.

    These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used canned green beans as I didn't have fresh and I am not a huge fan of frozen. This was a different way for us to enjoy green beans.

    This was very good; even though I pulled my fresh green beans out of the refrigerator only to find them too old and had to substitute a can of green beans. I really enjoyed the sauce, but will probably exchange the celery salt for nutmeg next time. I imagine the fresh green beans would have taken this to the next level, however, in the event you need to use canned I would recommend 2 15 oz cans for the amount of sauce this makes.
