  • 1 package (12 ounces) sliced button mushrooms (about 4 cups)

Step 2
Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in large saucepan; add green beans and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and immediately drop into ice-cold water to stop the cooking. Once cool, drain again.

Melt butter in same saucepan; add mushrooms and garlic. Season with pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
