 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      pounds        green beans -- ends snipped and
                         -- cut into 1-inch
                         -- pieces
    3      tablespoons   unsalted butter
    1      teaspoon      lemon zest -- freshly grated
    1      tablespoon    fresh rosemary leaves minced -- or
    1      teaspoon      dried rosemary -- crumbled
 
 In a large kettle of boiling salted water cook the beans for 5 minutes, or unti
 l they are crisp-tender, and drain.  While the beans are cooking, in a small sa
 ucepan melt the butter over low heat with the zest, rosemary, and salt and pepp
 er to taste .  Keep the mixture warm.  Transfer the beans to a serving dish and
  pour the butter mixture over the beans.  Toss well and serve warm.
 
 Notes: You can serve this vegetable side dish with your Cÿntemporary or Dÿxie (So
 uthern Style) Thanksgiving Day Dinner Menus from Recipe-a-Day.com.  The fresh r
 osemary really adds a savory flavor to the green beans, so it’s worth it to fin
 d the fresh herb.
 
 If you can't find fresh green beans in your local at this time of the year, you
  can substitute 16-oz.  of frozen green beans that are already trimmed.  Just v
 ary the cooking time and serve as directed.
