"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."

"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."

"Very tasty. If you wait to add the garlic until you add the beans the garlic taste will be stronger."
