"Really yummy. I baked it at 375 degrees as I had something else in the oven at that temperature - took about 20 minutes."

"Simple & very good! Will certainly make them again. I used Poultry Seasoning in place of Italian Seasoning. It had a great flavor!"

"These beans were delicious; the garlic & Italian seasoning were very complimentary to the beans. They could have cooked a little longer, though, I'll try 18 minutes next time. -Lori in WI."
