Made these for Christmas and they turned out so good I made them again for an open house. Each time I made plain green beans (just in case there were picky eaters) and then this recipe, and both times there was not one bean left over from this recipe! People were raving about them!! Once I made them with frozen green beans, which also worked, but liked the fresh beans much better. Instead of the pine nuts, I used honey-roasted slivered almonds to suit my taste. Have had many requests from my family to make these again.
