Green Beans with Garlic Butter and Walnuts
A colorful side dish comes together quickly when you have frozen whole green beans on hand.
1 (22 ounce) bag frozen whole green beans (e.g. Green Giant Select®)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 small red bell pepper, cut into very thin strips
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or walnut pieces
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
Cook green beans to desired doneness as directed on bag. Drain; cover to keep warm.
Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook bell pepper and garlic in butter 2 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until bell pepper is crisp-tender. Stir in walnuts; cook until hot.
Add green beans; sprinkle with seasoned salt. Cook and stir just until thoroughly heated. Spoon into serving dish.
Preparation/Total Time: 20 minutes
You could use pecans or almonds instead of the walnuts, if you like.
