    I loved this! I did not have a shallot, but it was great wthout it. I love green beans, OH and I actually used frozen green beans and it was still great...very simple! - 3/8/10

    Very light and yummy! Served as one of my veggies for Easter dinner when I was looking for something besides the Green Bean Casserole. Much healthier. Will be adding additional shallots next time (used 2 this time) for more flavor. - 4/26/11

  • I used white wine and had no schalloten and added crushed theory, they should have been delicious, but I found they tasted bland. I think the beans might have been too old...although, my hubby ate them all! - 5/28/10
