I prepared this as the recipe directed, with the addition that I poured in a good glug of white wine to help the cooking process along. It did do that, but it added great flavor as well. Also, not wanting big slivers of garlic, I chose to mince it. This was a nice, but still easy, way to dress green beans up a bit without obliterating their good fresh flavor. Read More

This recipe is good problem is that it has too much oil. I will add less of both or just butter. To make sure my green beans were cooked well I added a bit of water to create steam to steam them while they cooked. Read More

These were very good, but I think would be even better with some bacon added. The shallots and garlic cooked quickly, and even the green beans were "crisp tender" in about 6 minutes. Thanks, murphyjct, for sharing your recipe! Read More

Fantastic! I didn't have enough green beans so I added a red bell pepper cut into long slices. I used 2 shallots extra butter & 2 big pours of chardonnay (poured one towards the end). Also didn't have parmesan so used Asiago/Reggiano instead. AMAZING. Read More

I used Trader Joe's frozen french-style green beans and steamed them five mins before proceeding with the recipe. Added them to the "sauce" once it was done just long enough to wilt and heat them again. They were delicious! Followed reviewers' advice and used one TBSP each butter and EVOO. Read More

Absolutely delicious way to dress up Harcott Green Beans. Onion and shallot became carmelized as the green beans cooked! Yum! Read More

I thought these tasted good. They were just a little oily for my taste. I followed the recipe but used about 20 oz of green beans and cut the parmesan back by half. It seemed like plenty grated parmesan after 1/4 cup. I will probably stick to an oven roasted recipe I found on the site that doesnt require all the stirring and oily splatter from a stove-top pan while cooking. I did find too that they do taste better the next day after some of the oil is absorbed. ty Read More
