This is a very good recipe for fresh or frozen green beans and great for entertaining or holidays. Leave out the bacon and cook vegetables in a little olive oil for a vegetarian dish.

Fry onion and garlic in reserved bacon grease until translucent. Add tomatoes and bacon and simmer for two minutes.
Place green beans in a medium sauce pan with enough water to cover them and 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring them to a boil and boil for two minutes, drain, and add them to the skillet with the tomato mixture. Simmer for one minute and add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the green beans to a serving dish and top with parmesan cheese.

oakandsage 4 months agoI'll be the first to admit that I like my green beans heinously overcooked. I don't think there's anything bad about having a food preference, even one that - as all my friends are very quick to inform me - is wrong in every way that a preference can possibly be wrong. Still, I've always wished that I could understand what other people see in lightly cooked, crunchy green beans. This recipe definitely showcases lightly cooked beans; even I can appreciate them. Their snappy crunch blends well with the texture of the onions and bacon, and the bacon grease and juice of the tomatoes dresses everything deliciously. I added black pepper, but no salt. If making again, I might add fresh basil or thyme for variety.

outdoorlover 6 years agoI wanted to make a side dish using diced tomatoes but had no green beans. I substituted a can of rinsed black-eyed peas. I also skipped the bacon, using olive oil to saute the onions
