"This dish was absolutely fantastic! I loved it and had been hoping to have leftovers for lunch today, but my family devoured it all! I gave it four stars instead of five only because 6 tbsp is WAY too much butter. Half that much, or even less, is plenty. But with that minor adjustment, I highly recommend this dish!"

"I used two, 12oz bags of frozen great beans, and then followed the recipe exact. This was so good! Mine was a little redder than the picture, I think I threw some extra paprika in by mistake.....yummy! This goes in my husband's favorite recipe folder!!"

"This was not for us. I'll continue with my regular recipe with bacon, much more flavorful."
