    These were good, but I thought it needed a little more flavor...I did add a few things. I first sauted a little bacon until the fat was gone with thinly sliced wedges of purple onion, drained the grease. I then added the pine nuts, green beans a little olive oil and a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. This was excellent.  -  30 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This is a great recipe, quick to make and very classy. I used frozen green beans and sauteed them with the garlic and pine nuts instead of boiling first. I thought they had a great, nutty flavor from the garlic, and my father-in-law kept raving about the pine nuts.  -  24 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
