I love green beans and this recipe came as quite a pleasant surprise!! It was the sour cream that got my attention when I first saw this recipe. It's now one of our favorite ways to enjoy fresh green beans. Even my dad, who claims there is not such thing as a good green bean, will eat this and ask for seconds!! :O)
