bed o' beans (green beans)

My husband, who is not terribly fond of string beans, made this for Christmas Dinner. These are so good! He liked them too! They're a great side dish, and they also make a nice bed for steak or lobster. This was actually part of a recipe for lobster (that we didn't like too much), but these beans were awesome!
