A simple, delicious twist on the 'green bean side dish.' The pistachios add a savory crunch to the dish, as well as a tremendous taste combo with the beans. I would have never paired the two. The second timeI prepared them, I sprinkled a bit of sweet paprika over the beans and it added another flavor layer that worked well!

I served this at Thanksgiving and everyone loved the twist of the nuts.
