    I really liked this. Served with meatloaf and mashed potatoes. A wonderful side dish that really makes the meal "pop".

    I really liked these. I left out the almonds but the red pepper sauce was still a great addition to the green beans. Easy to prep the sauce in advance as well so I didn't have to worry about the dish timing.
