I was looking for something different to eat. You know how it is when you eat the same thing day after day. I needed to find something that would fit my husband's diet too. I found this recipe in a Better Homes & Garden Cookbook. Made it, and both my husband and I found it to be a recipe that we will make again. If you like Green Beans, then I think you will enjoy this one. The recipe called for fresh green beans. We used frozen and they tasted good to us. It also called for peeled tomatoes, but we didn't peel them and they turned out fine. So here it is:
Spanish String Beans
1 pound Green Beans,
cut into 1-inch pieces (3 cups)
1/2 cup chopped Green Pepper
1/4 cup chopped Onion
1 tablespoon Olive oil
or cooking oil
2 medium Tomatoes
, peeled and chopped.
1 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried Basil
1/4 teaspoon dried Rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cook fresh cut-up grean beans in water until desired tenderness. Then drain.
Meanwhile, cook chopped green pepper and onion in hot olive oil or cooking oil till tender but now brown.
Add chopped tomatoes, salt, basil, rosemary, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
Stir in cooked green beans, heat through.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Makes 8 servings.
