Green Beans Galore

29 Sep

My green beans are making up for the past two years when I’ve gotten none!  I made pesto tonight and tossed it with green beans and pasta.  No picture-honestly, it wasn’t the most appealing -looking dish, but really yummy.  Bella had three servings!

I have found I like green beans best when they’re blanched and then cooked.  They seem to stay greener and crisper that way.

Cook in boiling salted water for 5-7 minutes then dunk in icewater to chill.  You can then refrigerate then for later, or go ahead and cook with them right away-they’ll need 2-4 more minutes of cooking time.
