This is probably one of my only non fattening recipes, Hear that Megi!!! But we did gobble this down with Huli-Huli chicken Here. (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/showthread.php?t=1089)

1 lb. green beans, trimmed
1 cup halved grape tomatos
4 garlic cloves, slivered
2 Tbsp evoo
Salt and Red pepper flakes to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch beans in boiling water for 4 - 5 minutes, then transfer to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. When cool, drain and set aside.

Saute tomatos and garlic in oil in a large saute pan over med-high heat for 1 - 2 minutes ( remove from heat if garlic starts to burn)
Add beans, salt and red pepper falkes and heat through.

Pretty colors!

If you ever post a recipe about lima beans, I'm going to stop reading your threads. :D

Good to see you're smoking again.

The beans look good by the way.
