I didn't have fresh basil, so I used dried -- 1/2 tsp. I also added 1-1/2 tsps. fresh, finely minced parsley. Delicious. Like another viewer, I found that 7 minutes was exactly right.

Most excellent. I put butter on corn, why not green beans too! It really helped give green beans a little kick. I used frozen green beans instead of fresh because that is what I had on hand. ...

These were ok; used fresh basil, no celery. Maybe a dash of lemon juice would be good to add.

I didn't bother to add the water. I just decided to saute them with a bit of olive oil until they were tender. I then added the butter. Good flavor combo. I will make these again.

I doubled the recipe and used half wax beans and half greens beans. I did not double the basil though and wish that I had. Omitted the celery. Seven minutes was perfect. Tender but still crisp.

Good recipe, fresh tasting and easy to make.

Really a nice change. Will make again for sure.
