Toasted almonds add crunch to this no-fuss treatment for fresh beans. They get extra flavor from convenient onion soup mix and Parmesan cheese. —Edna Hoffman, Hebron, Indiana

  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 cups water

"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!!"

"I used two lbs. frozen green beans instead of fresh and added about 1/4 cup chopped fresh onions as well. I also reduced the butter to 4 tablespoons and will reduce it even more next time. Delicious! I filled a bowl and made a meal out of it - they're that good!"
