Can you substitute canned green beans for this recipe? Dietitian comment: Yes--Use no salt added canned green beans and skip step #1 since the canned beans are already cooked.

Wonderful, tasty recipe. For some extra flavor, I add a splash of balsamic vinegar to each serving.

This is a great recipe as my husband needs to keep his phosphorus levels down. He loves green-beans.

These were very good! To give it more of a spicy taste We added Crushed Red Pepper 1/2 Teaspoon.
