Reviews for Garlic Green Beans
"A good base recipe. I added more garlic as well as a lot of Parmesan and a dash of salt. Delicious!"
"These were good but I added parmesean cheese to them and made them even better!"
"I make these with young, thin fresh green beans and I do not cut them in pieces. They are very good."
"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."
"These are okay. I've made better green bean recipes from this website.~ Theresa"

"Nice way to spice it up. The onion and garlic added perfect flavor. This is a favorite in my house!"
"Very tasty. If you wait to add the garlic until you add the beans the garlic taste will be stronger."
