Lemon Rosemary Green Beans

These Lemon Rosemary Green Beans are a quick and delicious weeknight side dish. They only take a about 10 minutes to prepare and taste great. The beans go great with chicken, steak, or pork. Really just about anything!

If you want to save a few minutes on the preparation of this dish, clean and trim the edges of the green beans the night before. I just cleaned and trimmed the beans while the water was coming to a boil.

These Lemon Rosemary Green Beans use a little bit of fresh chopped rosemary. I always have rosemary growing on our patio. I love the way it smells and it is great for cooking. If you don’t have any fresh rosemary around, you can use dried. The green beans will taste fine.
