Reviews for Tangy Italian Green Beans
"Good recipe, except I used regular garlic, sauteed in the olive oil, additional Parmesan cheese and Italian Bread Crumbs. Thanks."
"Fantastic recipe as is! Even my 14-month-old daughter likes them!"
"I added sliced almonds for a dinner party and swapped garlic powder for the garlic salt (not too fond of garlic salt - too salty for me). I also used multi-cracked pepper (pink, red, green, black, etc.) and it was a SUPER HIT!! Think when the farmer's market is in full swing and everything is in season other herbs would enhance the green beans - or I might add other fresh veggies to extend the batch for BBQ get togethers. Thanks, Rudy, I'm always looking for new recipes for green beans since I LOVE them!"
