    Very good, easy recipe. Lacks slightly in flavor but will still make it again. Maybe needs butter?

    Loved them! Didn’t end up adding the red pepper flakes because I didn’t want spicy for the dish I was pairing it with. So quick and easy, will be making again!

    I must’ve done something wrong because the beans didn’t come out that flavorful. You could hardly taste the garlic and the salt, the spice was the only thing that came through. Might try making again and hoping it doesn’t go wrong.

    It turned out really good. I used a smaller amount of green beans, so I “ballparked” the ingredients. I used too much oil, it still tasted really good anyway.
