    Was pretty good but I had to double the amount of garlic to get a noticeable flavor.

    It’s a good side dish and easy to make. Green beans turned yellow when I boiled it.

    It turns out excellent each time. I've made them a few times and it's simple and tasty, even without parsley.

    Made these for Thanksgiving dinner and they were absolutely delicious and extremely easy to make. I'll probably be making it every Thanksgiving now! I used fresh green beans, but canned might work too. I boiled mine about five minutes longer than they suggested because they were still pretty hard. Really up to you to decide how you like them.

    Turned out great. Chose not to boil the green beans for 10 minutes but for approximately 5 minutes so they still had a bite to them and were lightly crisp. Sautéed the garlic very briefly and tossed in the green beans, salted and peppered and added parsley and served. Very bright and herbaceous. I will definitely make this again.
