Tonight’s side dish was truly one of my favs. Green beans marinara is easy and tasty. Pair it with steak, chicken or even pork chops. I bought a bag of fresh green beans but you can use frozen as well.
- Bag of green beans
- 6-10 cloves of garlic
- olive oil
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- salt and pepper to taste
Boil a pot of salted water. Meanwhile, trim your green beans. In a saucepan, heat extra virgin olive oil about 2 tablespoons. When heated add your garlic and when slightly browned add can of diced tomatoes. Let cook on low. When water has boiled add your green beans and let cook for 10 minutes. Drain beans and then add to your sauce. Add salt and pepper. Mix, serve, and enjoy!
If you like you can add hot red pepper flakes too. You can also steam your green beans if you prefer that over boiling.
