Italian Green Beans

This recipe is very delicious using flat Italian green beans (Roma).  The problem is they are hard to find, and I haven’t had any luck growing them, yet.  So for now, I stop at Brookshire Brothers grocery and buy them frozen.  Like with some of my recipes, you just have to season, until it’s tasty to you!

Italian Green Beans

Ingredients

  • Extra virgin olive oil (don't skimp, it's part of the flavoring)
  • Italian pole (flat) green beans, frozen
  • Lots of chopped garlic
  • Lots of dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat a generous amount of oil on medium. Place the beans in the pan frozen. Cook until they start to defrost.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until some of the beans start to wilt and turn a darker green. Taste, and adjust seasoning.
  3. Note: Keep pan at moderate heat, or a little lower. The beans should not "fry," but cook a little slowly so they develop good flavor and the garlic does not toast.
