    Very good and easy side dish. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't have fresh basil so used dried. We all enjoyed it.

    Absolutely wonderful! Followed the recipe exactly and used fresh basil. This is a keeper! Thank you for posting.

    This is sooooooo good. Simple and fresh. I like to add a bit more olive oil (drizzle it right over the potatoes) and let the vegetables get a little crust on them in the skillet. It's key to season well with salt and pepper. Winning dish - we love it.

    Love it! Such a quick, simple recipe that really impresses. I've never really liked green beans, so when my wife suggested we have some as a side dish, I hopped on recipezaar, hoping for something different than the million casserole recipes. We found this, tried it out, and I love it! Thanks!
