New Recipe/Side Dish: Green Beans with Red Pepper

Green Beans with Red Peppers.

This is a dish I never though I would try due to the red peppers as I am not (was not) a red pepper fan. However, the recipe called to me for some reason and it sounded delicious so I thought I would give it a try and boy was I right! This recipe was a huge success at multiple Christmas dinners and even just as a quick, easy anynight side-dish. The slices of red pepper give the green beans such a good flavor, along with some added salt or lemon pepper salt!! I promise you will note be disappointed with this recipe.
