Stopped on the way home and got some fresh beans for this recipe last night. As always, I doubled the garlic. It was a great side for my meatloaf and potatoes! My girlfriend loved them. Will definitely make them again.

Two of my favorites in one dish! The garlic adds just an extra bit of richness to this dish. It also looks amazing when you serve it.

Flavor was great, especially with so few ingredients. I made a half a recipe and used a skillet instead of a dutch oven. Came out just fine. Family requested I make this again soon.
