Good basic recipe, but need to add salt and pepper.

A good base recipe. I added more garlic as well as a lot of Parmesan and a dash of salt. Delicious!

These were good but I added parmesean cheese to them and made them even better!

I make these with young, thin fresh green beans and I do not cut them in pieces. They are very good.

Very good recipe, and my family loves it! I use fresh, very thin green beans, and steam them slightly rather than boiling to preserve vitamin content.

I've been making this recipe for several years. I usually make it with fresh green beans. The only thing I do differently is boil the green beans in chicken broth. This is an excellent way to make regular green beans spectacular. My family loves this healthy dish.
