Marjoram Green Beans

 Marjoram Green Beans
This easy-to-do vegetable dish becomes memorable with the addition of marjoram. The taste is very subtle, yet distinctive. I like to fix beans this way for special dinners, since the bright green is so pretty on the plate. -Charlene Griffin, Minocqua, Wisconsin
