I really like vegetables just as God made them (OK, so God didn't make them with butter, but, you get the idea). But sometimes, I like to give them a little dressing up. This recipe is quick and easy and changes the ordinary green bean into a very tasty side dish.
Italian Green Beans
Yield: 3-4 side servings
2-3 cups pared, cut green beans
1/2 cup diced onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 TBS olive oil
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
salt & pepper to taste
1 15oz cans diced tomatoes with juice
Steam green beans in a sauce pan until fork tender. Meanwhile, saute onion, garlic, salt/pepper and herbs in the olive oil. Add the tomatoes and cook to reduce. Reduce until sauce is nice and thick. When green beans are done, add to the tomato mixture. Stir to coat and serve.
