While reading the reviews I thought it was interesting that people either loved or hated this recipe. I thought it sounded good, but I also misread the recipe. In my head, I thought these beans went into the oven. When I realized my mistake, the recipe no longer appealed to me. I could see why the one reviewer said it tasted "sandy green beans". Maybe if the bread crumbs were sauteed in butter first and them sprinkled over the beans it would be better. I didn't use canned dry crumbs, but threw a couple of pieces of white bread into the food processor, along with fresh garlic and the cheese. I sprinkled the crumbs over the beans and poured melted butter over the dish. I put them in the oven for about twenty minutes and they came out very good. Kids and hubby loved them.



I made this on Thanksgiving - what a great alternative to green bean casserole! I used a bag of steamed green beans to cut down on time and hassle. I drizzled about a tablespoon or two of olive oil, no need for all that fat. The herbs and spices give it the flavor.



This was pretty tasty. I'm not a vegetable fan so it was nice to find a vegetable recipe that didn't load up on fat and cheese. BTW--I cut the oil back to about 1 T. My husband and I enjoyed this so I'll make this again.
