This soothing side dish is so much nicer than plain beans and potatoes. Mother relied on hearty downhome recipes such as this one. Now I also cook it for my family. —Lisa Andis, Morristown, Indiana

"This is one of our favorite dishes to serve with the Meatball in Sweet Clove Sauce that

you can find in Taste of Home. We like it using peas the best, but using the green beans is good to. Enjoy this recipe. We do."
