Green Beans with Dill Cream Sauce

You can make the lightly flavored dill sauce for this quick, dressed-up side while the frozen beans are cooking. It's different and delicious with a variety of entrees. —Joan Airey, Rivers, Manitoba.

    Yum! The sauce rocks, I'm going to try it on other veggies.

    Wow, this was really great. The sauce was simple to make (altho I omitted the onion) and were a wonderful addition to the green beans. My husband loved it as well. Definitely a keeper!

    I loved this dish and I'm not a big dill fan. I wanted to use fresh beans but it wasn't the right season. Frozen were fine. Drain the beans well so they don't dilute the sauce.
