Original recipe makes 4



Remove the beans from the pods. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add salt, and drop in the beans. Boil for 30 seconds (no longer), drain, and transfer to a bowl of cold water. Using your thumbnail to slit the outer skins, pop out the beans and set aside. Heat the oil in a casserole or covered skillet and saute the onion over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until tender. Add the garlic, beans, and lettuce, cover and cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes. Add the wine, cover, and cook 10 minutes or until the beans are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. PLGOLD@IX.NETCOM.COM (PAT GOLD) REC.FOOD.RECIPES From archives. Downloaded from G Internet, G Internet.
