Seasoned Green Beans For 2

This tasty side dish from our Test Kitchen has just enough cayenne pepper to warm a frosty night and can hold its own with most meat entrees. Golden, caramelized onions add a dressed-up touch.

    Quick and easy, and since I used frozen green beans, it was all ingredients I keep around. Just different enough to be special.

    This was a great recipe. I used this as a side dish to hambugers and beef gravy. SO Yummy!
