"I have never eaten fresh green beans before that I can recall. These were good. The sauce and bacon took away the green flavor. Thanks for the idea!!"

"Easy and impressive. To save time I have made plain green beans, poured the sauce over the beans and added the bacon crumbled before serving. This recipe was even multiplied to feed 300 at a wedding dinner."
