  1. Very Good! I used frozen green beans that I boiled for about 10 minutes first. I used a little more garlic and threw the beans in with the garlic/pine nuts/oil for a couple minutes. They had great flavor and a different twist to a great side dish!
  2. Frankly upon first glance I thought this dish would be bland! But I was sooo wrong! The S&P and fresh garlic flavored the green beans so wonderfully - they were delicious!

  8. This is the best green bean recipe I ever used. Everything in it was my husbands favorite...The garlic and the pinenuts. I always keep pinenuts in a sealed container in my freezer to add to the flavor of many recipes. I seasoned the hot beans in the strainer before adding them to the garlic and - Read more ...
