Simple and pretty colors for the holiday table. This was a hit for the whole family. Just wish there was a way to make the sauce stick to the beans.

Got raves at the Thanksgiving dinner with this recipe and requests to make it again at Christmas.

Not much different from ordinary green beans, but they looked pretty.
