Veggies don't get much better than this! Used frozen green beans for convenience, and had to use a green bell pepper, but otherwise made the recipe as stated... I am a veggie lover and this was just wonderful to me!

So delicious and easy to make. I used steam-in-the-bag beans to make it even easier to prepare.
