      prektjr.dc, thank you for sharing this recipe with us. I plan to try it. Years ago I made a green bean dish I loved. Never thought I would forget that recipe. Darn. I was hoping yours was the same. It isn't but it still sounds good. I have a grandson taking a cooking class in high school. He must prepare a 3-course meal at the end of the class. I plan to give this recipe to him to review. Thanks.
