Simple Garlic Green Beans

Italian-Style Green Beans

These beans are always on the table at my Italian sister-in-laws

When there is a family celebration.

They’re usually served cold…

But I love to eat them hot from the pan…

This may not be the most traditional way to cook them

But I love how they retain their crisp sweetness

While I like my beans underdone…

You can leave them in the pan until they’re cooked to your liking
