Seasoned Green Beans

This is one of the sides that we eat regularly. I’ve made it here using fresh green beans, but I often use frozen beans (petite green beans work well). Get started by washing the beans, snapping the ends off, and breaking them in half.

Now they are ready to be steamed. If you are using frozen beans, start the process here. In a microwave steamer (or stovetop steamer if your prefer), steam the green beans until they are tendercrsip.

While they are steaming, start by melting some butter in a medium fry pan.

Sprinkle 1/2 packet of Italian dressing mix over the beans. If you like less seasoning, use less. Be sure to shake the packet first so that it is well mixed before you sprinkle it.
