I left out the garlic, and took sliced onions and carmelized them and added it to it. My husband loved it.
In my opinion I thought this recipe was great. I happend to like the taste of oregano so yes I would make it again.
For boiled, they are not bad. Might roast or share with same ingredients next time.
One word - Yuck! Oregano does not go with green beans. flavor is strange. (Not good). I usually give suggestions on how to fix a recipe, but I can't help this one.
