Green Beans and Tomatoes

Green  Beans and Tomatoes
     Looking for a perfect side dish for your next dinner meal? This traditional, (in the sense of my family), possibly Italian side dish is delicious. Quick, easy, and full of flavor. We always have this as a side dish to big family meals. One of my favorites growing up. Green Beans and Tomatoes.
  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 1 can whole stewed tomatoes, (of course fresh tomatoes are better)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Salt/Pepper
1. Prep the green beans by pinching off the ends and halving.
2. In a large pot with water boil the green beans to soften them up a bit for roughly 30 minutes.
3. Drain water.
4. In a bowl pour the whole tomatoes and crush with hands or cut into chunks with scissors.
5. In same pot over medium heat toss the green beans with the tomatoes. Pour in some olive oil and diced garlic and simmer for about 10 minutes.
     This side dish is such a great accompaniment to any dinner you serve your family. Bon Appetit!
