    This is just beautiful! I cooked as directed, but found I needed more time to get my green beans crisp tender. As posted, I found it a little bland, so I added some salt and pepper. I used pecans instead of walnuts, my preference. Loved the addition of the nuts....they are what made this dish! Thanks for sharing!

    What a pretty side dish & it's easy enough to be made anytime! Like the other reviewers I had to increase the cooking time in order for the green beans to be crisp tender. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    This is excellent. I didnt have any walnuts so I used slivered almonds. Thank you for the recipe.

    We both enjoyed these and the nutty flavor of the walnuts. I also had to cook these longer to get tender. Thanks for sharing. ~Sue

    These are very good and simple to make! I love the addition of red bell pepper. I had to cook mine a little longer for our liking. Thanks for sharing!
