Italian Green Beans

Fagiolini Di Sant' Anna (St. Anna Beans)

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 lbs. green beans (Chinese long beans if you can get them)
10 oz. plum tomatoes, peeled and chopped
Salt, pepper

In a large skillet over low heat warm the olive oil. Add the garlic and fry gently until translucent, about 3 minutes. (don't let the garlic burn. If it does, start over, burned garlic will ruin any dish) Add the green beans and tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Lower the heat and cook approximately 15 minutes, until the beans are tender.

Serves 6

Variations: Another Tuscan variation of this recipe calls for the addition of one teaspoon of fresh marjoram, which we'd suggest you add right at the end of cooking for the freshest flavor. For a Lebanese flair you can use tomato paste in place of the chopped plum tomatoes and add parsley, mint, dill or oregano to taste.
