Sauteed Green Beans

This beans are seasoned with some of my favorite herbs. I've found that basil, oregano and parsley are great flavor accents for canned, frozen or fresh beans. I've taken this delicious side along to last-minute potlucks as well.—Heidi Wilcox, Lapeer, Michigan

    Great change to just plain old green beans.

    So easy to make! And I love that this recipe uses frozen green beans - something I always have in my freezer. I used fresh diced onion and sauteed it in the butter before I added the green beans. Next time I might add mushrooms too. A tasty and really easy side dish!Volunteer Field Editor

    I made this with fresh french green beans and it was excellent!! Not an oregano fan, so just left it out. I may add a few mushrooms with it next time. Love the flavors in this side dish.
