Super Easy Dill Green Beans

French style green beans are a favorite at our house, and we particularly like dill green beans.  This recipe can be whipped up in less than 10 minutes and the beans are delicious.

16oz bag of microwavable French Green Beans (trimmed, washed and ready to microwave).
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs dried dill weed (or 4 tbs fresh dill)
1 tbs butter
juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
fresh ground pepper to taste

Microwave beans according to instructions.  For the ones I used, I pierced a hole in the bag and microwaved for 5 minutes.  Don't overcook.  We like our beans al dente.
Dill weed and olive oil.

While the beans are microwaving, heat 2 tbs olive oil and 2 tbs dried dill weed in sauce pan.  When bean have cooked, empty the beans into the olive oil and dill weed and stir to coat well.  Place in serving bowl and add juice of 1/2 lemon and 1 tbs butter.  Add freshly ground pepper to taste.  Serve immediately.   5 servings.
Add butter and lemon juice.
Add fresh ground pepper to taste.

These are quite tasty and as I said a favorite at our house.
