    These were really easy to make and absolutely AMAZING!! I highly recommend them as a special side dish.

    Very good and easy. I used a 1 lb. bag of frozen french-cut green beans, defrosted them, then threw them in with the sauce & shallots (according to directions). I then cooked it down a bit-which I think deepened the flavor. Served w/the roasted garlic & butternut squash cassoulet from this site.

    I LOVED these green beans. My family ate them all, although they didn't seem to be quite as enthusiastic as I was about the new recipe. I didn't have shallots so I just finely chopped some onion and sauteed it (longer than a minute, I don't find those times are ever accurate), added a little garlic before I added the balsamic sauce and then cooked it down a little bit with the green beans. I felt it was important to let the sauce cook down a little because it had a VERY strong vinegar smell to it. If this happens to you too don't be afraid, it still tastes great after it's cooked up! I also felt it would be good with some nuts so I chopped up pecans and stirred those in (I would only recommend this with fresh pecans not store bought because they tend to be so oily). Overall great and would work for almost any occasion!

    Oh my gosh!!! These Green beans were awesome!!! I used minced onions instead of Scallions, but I could not stop eating them. Great for company or just every day. I used the same pan that I cooked the beans in to heat up the dressing, then threw in the cooled beans. Saved a pan!

    These were excellent! I wish I had doubled the recipe.

    This was a tremendous accompaniment to a pasta dish on a week night. My side dish offerings can get boring and repetitive if I don't find easy new ones. This was quick and delicious.
