Speedy Rosemary Green Beans

This is the only way I make green beans anymore! We keep frozen green beans on hand at all times now. It works for everyday meals and company, and you cook them in the microwave! It works without the fresh rosemary, but it really adds a nice touch. Recipe is from Southern Living, October, 2005. See their online version here.

Prep: 5 min., Cook: 8 min.

Ingredients

1 (16-ounce) package frozen cut green beans (do not thaw)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

Stir together all ingredients in a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, covered with plastic wrap, at HIGH 8 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender, stirring after 4 minutes. Serve with a slotted spoon. Betsy's note: I use a Corningware dish with lid.

Makes 4 to 6 servings

Like the new design. Still very 70's, but stronger and less orange. Like the stock-y photography, too!
