    Something else. Very good. I steamed fresh green beans for 2-3 minutes then sauteed them as recipe stated.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Easy to make and delicious to eat. I used fresh green beans that I steamed before adding to the sauteed garlic.  -  29 Sep 2008


    These vegetables were delicious!! I had been having a craving for green beans and this fit the bill perfectly. I did use fresh green beans and I boiled them in salted water for 4 minutes first so they were crisp-tender then shocked them in cold water before sauteeing them. I used less butter than suggested but they were still yummy!! Topped with parmesan cheese! A definite make again!  -  29 Sep 2008
