Made it as written and seemed like too much butter for us. And the seasoning was just OK.

Very good recipe! A wonderful change from steamed or casserole type green beans.

My family loved this! I didn't happen to have a steamer basket, so I just boiled the green beans just until they were crisp/tender. The sauce was super-easy and delicious. I will definitely make this again - for a simple dinner or a more elaborate one.
