  1. So do I understand right? You put FROZEN beans in with all the olive oil, etc then place in the bag and freeze - right?? When it is time to cook, do you defrost them first before putting in the oven or stovetop or just cook them right out of the freezer?? Thanks.
  2. Do you defrost before putting in the oven? Bake how long?


  1. I have made this recipe at least a half-dozen times and it has turned out fabulous every time. In fact, it is now my go-to potluck recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and one that my relatives and in-laws always request! How much better is it that I can prep it weeks before the holiday and freeze it? I shake up all the ingredients together in the freezer bag to avoid dirtying a bowl, and then I always use the oven-roasting method to cook it when the time comes. Yum, yum, yum! Thank you for sharing!
  2. Used this as oamc and it turned out great
  3. Very good - I forgot the parmesan cheese and didn't have any sweet pepper, but was still very good. Next time I will definitely add the parmesan cheese, so will be even better. Thanks for a great recipe.
  4. OMG these are great!!! i added some green pepper to it also. and it froze well. I roasted them in the oven. Delish!!!
  5. These are super!! A healthy, fast, OAMC vegetable side dish!! Woohoo! Everyone loved them, including the kids! Dh's comment was that "these definitely go into the rotation"! I'm glad I made 6 meals worth. Thanks!!
