Success tastes like tomato sauce :)
My lunch/dinner (Linner as I like to call it) was a complete success!
I used what I had available…
Here’s the recipe I used. Do what feels right for you
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 shallot (or a small onion – your choice)
1 can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup tomato purée or sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
Red pepper and salt to taste
I began with sweating some garlic and shallot in the olive oil
As they began to turn a golden color I added the can of diced tomatoes
Then I added the 1/2 cup of the tomato purée, red pepper and salt. It needed about 10 minutes so….
I salted some water (Nonna always did that… it seasons the green beans?) and after it came to a boil I added these bad boys
Meanwhile the tomato sauce simmered…
So pretty. I could not wait to eat!
ta da! It wouldn’t be complete without a little cheese!
This was so easy! And I don’t mean to toot my own horn here, but it tasted soooooo good. If you don’t think you’re a fan of green beans, try them this way!
