This is a great recipe, quick to make and very classy. I used frozen green beans and sauteed them with the garlic and pine nuts instead of boiling first. I thought they had a great, nutty flavor from the garlic, and my father-in-law kept raving about the pine nuts.

These were good, but I thought it needed a little more flavor...I did add a few things. I first sauted a little bacon until the fat was gone with thinly sliced wedges of purple onion, drained the grease. I then added the pine nuts, green beans a little olive oil and a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. This was excellent.

This is the best green bean recipe I ever used. Everything in it was my husbands favorite...The garlic and the pinenuts. I always keep pinenuts in a sealed container in my freezer, to add to the flavor of many recipes. I seasoned the hot beans in the strainer, before adding them to the garlic and pinenuts. The green beans retained their color and looked lovely besides tasting wonderful. Thank you for a great recipe. Nancy
