    PanNan's Note:

    This is a recipe from Lidia's Italian American Kithchen. The traditional beans used in this recipe are the Italian string beans - the flat wide ones. Due to the acidity of the tomato sauce they will turn olive green in the cooking process. This recipe is posted by request. I haven't tried it yet.

      My mom had a whole bunch of green beans from the market. WE didnt know what to make, and this was a really easy, but flavourful dish! WE also added some sliced onion because of our addiction to it..LOL
