We had the most delicious green beans at an Italian restaurant recently. I've tried to replicate them and I have to say these were awesome!

"i made this Wednesday night with baked Salmon topped with fresh lump crabmeat sprinkled with parmensan cheese & garlic buttered whit rice. my husband loved the entire meal that he asked me to make the green beans tonight! yippee! making them tonight with a roasted chicken & mashed potatoes. "

Bring a large pot of water to boil and blanch green beans for approximately 1 minute. Drain. Heat large skillet over medium heat then add the olive oil and butter. Add the onion and saute for approximately 5 minutes. Add the drained beans and continue cooking for another 10 minutes or so until the onions are carmelized and the beans are beginning to go limp.

This recipe is simple and quite tasty. The wife loved it. I served it with a garlic shrimp and paste recipe also found on this site. Perfect combo. I followed both recipes as listed.

Tried this tonight and it was really good! Only thing I added was minced garlic in with the onions. Perfect!

Had to use up fresh green beans from the garden. It was very good. I added some zucchini and a little more vinegar because I love it. Thanks!

This was a great way to add a little pizzaz to plain old green beans. I sauted a few fresh mushrooms and bacon bits too. Great side dish!

Was good but needed something else! Was kind of bland so next time might add more seasoning! Good other wise
