I have dinner guest set to arrive around 7 (in about an hour).  I've made lasagna from scratch and now just need to figure out how to prepare the green beans...  Suggestions?

I would just steam them with a little bit of seasoning. Not everyone likes bacon and butter added to fresh vegetables.

I use canned green beans (don't have fresh right now) and I drain them and put in big pot, add water  about half way, throw in 2 or 3 slices of raw bacon, salt and pepper and some little potatoes.

Boil for half hour and let simmer. Delish !  

The water boils out and it has great bacon and flavor and the taters are delish too !

 I do 450 for 15-20 mins depending on if you like some burnt edges which we allll do here.  I usually use garlic powder because my minced usually burns a bit.

Quoting .betty.white.:

What temp, or should I broil?  How long?  :)

Quoting taKENheart:

 I like to roast them...olive oil, s&p, and garlic. You have a yummy dinner going on ;)

 the #1 recipe for roasted green beans on my fave site says to go with 400degrees but I always do 450.

 You are busy cooking so I hope you saw my last reply...I would hate if your green beans burnt up.  I go by my oven so 450 works for ME.  Eeks...now I'm nervous.

Here is the recipe from my fave site....if you need a reference point.

I use lots of butter and ham base.  The ham base makes them amazing!
