This is a simple but so delicious side dish. Very popular with my family for Sunday after church with any main course. I sometimes add other ingredients such as mushrooms, onions, and even a little curry powder. Hope you enjoy! This serves about 2/3 cup per person and about 60 calories.

2 10-ounce pkgs. of frozen green beans can be substituted for fresh.
