Green beans and red tomatoes, added after the beans are cooked to keep their bright red color, provide this dish with a double advantage – It looks good and it tastes good!
1 cup canned diced tomatoes in juice
1 cup finely chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup chopped fresh basil, or ½ teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon salt
14 ounce package frozen Italian flat green beans
1. Drain the juice from the canned tomatoes into a large skillet, and cook onion, garlic, and seasonings in the juice for about 5 minutes.
2. Add green beans and ¼ cup water. Simmer until beans are tender, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the tomatoes, and serve.
