"Stopped on the way home and got some fresh beans for this recipe last night. As always, I doubled the garlic. It was a great side for my meatloaf and potatoes! My girlfriend loved them. Will definitely make them again."

"Flavor was great, especially with so few ingredients. I made a half a recipe and used a skillet instead of a dutch oven. Came out just fine. Family requested I make this again soon."
