I try this recipe using a microwave, using frozen green beans and cutting fresh baby carrots into sticks. I rinsed the frozen green beens first and then add the carrots and the beans to the water mixture and mircowaved covered till tender, drain and toss with Italian salad dressing. My husband liked the taste of this dish and will make it again and again.
