"This is a wonderful recipe! The best green beans I've ever had. I made it for a dinner party last week, getting rave reviews. And am making it again for a potluck supper tonight. Hands down the best! And easy too."

"Really yummy. I baked it at 375 degrees as I had something else in the oven at that temperature - took about 20 minutes."

"Excellent!! I cooked em' 27 minutes. I also used half Italian seasoning and half poultry seasoning. Worked great! Also used additional salt--just personal taste."
