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!


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

  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.
