    I prepared this recipe recently and we loved it. I followed the recipe but could only find a 10 oz. bag of frozen green beans at the market. It was perfect for the two of us. These beans are delicious and so easy to prepare on the stove. I highly recommend this recipe. Volunteer Field Editor

    Wonderful recipe. I used a mix of yellow and green fresh green beans that I had blanched. I sautéed the onion and beans in garlic oil instead of butter. The herbs gave the beans a differently delicious taste. Will make these again.
