These are awesome. I have fixed these for a healthy side for Thanksgiving for the last 2 years.

This makes ordinary green beans special. Because it had an Italian feel to it, the beans didn't seem to go very well with my ham loaf and spicy sweet potatoes. It would be excellent with meatloaf.

Refreshing take on a green beans mixture. Seemed rather fancy for fairly easy preperation. Will make again!

LOVE this recipe! I made this with frozen green beans, fresh chives in place of shallots and green onions, and small vine tomatoes in place of grape tomaotes and it still turned out fantastic. This recipe is definitly a keeper.

Had this tonight for supper. We thought it was very good. Didn't have fresh green beans so I used frozen and it worked out well. We loved the olive oil and rosemary flavor
