I'm always looking for new ways to prepare green beans because it's one of the few vegetables my husband likes. This recipe is very delicious! It's a simple recipe using a very easy yet flavorful sauce. I used real bacon bits to garnish this, just to save a step and it worked out very well. Not only did hubby love it, so did the kids! The only thing I would change next time is double the sauce. It didn't seem to make enough for our liking.
