I agree, sounds rather blah to me. Have you ever tried fresh green beans in a "marinara" type sauce? It's just a simple tomato marinara sauce of sautee'd onion, garlic, little oregano, salt and pepper. Really good with hard, crusty Italian bread.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 27, 2009

I thought this recipe was one of the worst for fresh green beans. No flavor and they nearly burned up before they were tender crisp. I won't use it again.
