My favorite way to eat green beans, and very easy to make


  1. Boil green beans until they are still a little crunchy but fork tender. Drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a big skillet then add garlic. Cook about 30 seconds or 1 minute (make sure you do not burn it).
  3. Add green beans to skillet and saute about 7 minutes, tossing frequently.
  4. Squeeze with fresh lemon juice and serve.

The lemon was a nice addition and very fresh. Made for Spring PAC 09. Thanks for the recipe

Made for Spring PAC 2008. These were good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the lemon as we aren't huge lemon fans. This was nice quick easy side dish.
