Easy Italian Green Beans


My local farm grows the best green beans.  They are always perfect, filled with flavor, and easy to cook.  I had been looking for a simple way to incorporate green beans into an Italian meal for some time.  This recipe is so easy I can't even believe it!  My 3 year old loved them as well as the adults in the family.  If you want a great way to incorporate green beans into your family's diet, give this recipe a try.  It's a winner for taste and ease!


Ingredients

1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
dash of red pepper flakes
salt and pepper



Directions
  1. Steam the beans until they are crisp tender, about 3-5 minutes.  Place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.  Drain and set aside.
  2. In a fry pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Add the garlic, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.  Saute for 1 minute.  
  3. Add green beans.  Toss to evenly coat the oil and seasonings.  Cook an additional 5 minutes.  Serve hot.

  2. I'm not a fan of green beans, but I love how simple this recipe is! I think I might try is using broccoli. All those flavors are really amazing together!

  3. Boil or steam the green beans until cooked but still crisp. In a skillet melt the butter and add the cooked green beans.hoelang sperziebonen koken

  4. Wash and expel the string from the green beans and snap off the finishes. Bubble or steam the green beans until cooked yet at the same time fresh. In a skillet soften the margarine and include the cooked green beans.online dispensary bc
