DF and I have had an abundance of green beans from our garden. This is by far the best way to eat them.
½ lb green beans (this is enough for about 2 people)
1 Tbs pesto (I have homemade peso that I keep in the freezer)
1 tsp olive oil or butter
Salt to taste
In a small pot of salted water bring beans to a boil. Drain as soon as the beans start to boil. Add oil (or butter) and pesto to pot and toss in drained beans. Sauté over high heat for 1-2 minutes and add salt if desired.
