so good! i sauteed the anchovy with the oil and butter first (b/c then the anchovy dissolves and your left with that great salty taste and no one complaining about eating little fish!). then i added water and beans and boiled - so good!!

This recipe sounds really good but I haven't made it yet. I'm writing to alert others who, like me, must watch their sodium, fat and/or caloric intake, that the nutritional information accompanying this recipe is deceptive. It breaks this recipe down into 4 servings; however, with only a 9oz package of green beans and nothing else to bulk it up, this dish will serve 2 at the most unless you serve really tiny portions. For those of us of who must watch our salt, fat and/or caloric intake, an accurate (and realistic) nutritional analysis is very important.

These were really good! I had a bag of 'steamfresh' green beans, so I just cooked them in the microwave as directed on the package, and in a small pan, I sauteed the anchovies w/ the oil, the garlic and I also added about 1/4 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. I cooked that until the anchovies melted and then added the lemon juice. I tossed that with the green beans and seasoned them with black pepper. These were really great for something different and I'm glad I gave them a try. I will be making these again! Thanks for pposting. :)
