Italian Seasoned Green Beans Low-Carb Recipe

This Italian Seasoned Green Bean Low-Carb recipe is super easy. You can use bottled dressing which makes it much quicker to prepare. I prefer the Walden Farms Calorie-Free dressing, but if you are Paleo or Primal, you may choose to make your own. It pairs well with beef, chicken, fish, or lamb and reheats easily if you are bringing it to a gathering. If you don’t have fresh green beans, simply thaw out a bag or two of frozen beans and use those.
