MY REVIEW

These were good but I added parmesean cheese to them and made them even better!

Good

MY REVIEW

I make these with young, thin fresh green beans and I do not cut them in pieces. They are very good.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 27, 2012

Very good recipe, and my family loves it! I use fresh, very thin green beans, and steam them slightly rather than boiling to preserve vitamin content.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2012

I've been making this recipe for several years. I usually make it with fresh green beans. The only thing I do differently is boil the green beans in chicken broth. This is an excellent way to make regular green beans spectacular. My family loves this healthy dish.
