"My family loved this! I didn't happen to have a steamer basket, so I just boiled the green beans just until they were crisp/tender. The sauce was super-easy and delicious. I will definitely make this again - for a simple dinner or a more elaborate one."

"Seemed rather lemony to me; perhaps if I make these again I will use less lemon so that I can taste some of the other flavors more."

"Now that I've made this recipe several times, I would say that I only use 2 Tbsp of butter and just about 1/8tsp oil. We like it much better that way."
