1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
¼ c butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
½ tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp grated lemon peel *try long strips w/veg peeler
Place the beans in a steamer basket; place in a large saucepan over 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. (Steam frozen green beans 10 min in electric steamer.) Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the remaining ingredients until butter is melted. Transfer beans to a serving bowl; drizzle with butter mixture and toss to coat.
