How to cook fresh green beans
These Italian green beans with tomatoes and garlic were so tasty the first night but also great as leftovers. I had some leftover Spanish Rice and then those Air Fryer Chicken Legs you see peeking in there. 🙂 So good! The combo was my lunch all week!
After you saute all the veggies together – I just grated a little Romano on top and served them. I really like the Fire Roasted tomatoes for recipes like this where you really taste the tomatoes. It just adds an extra layer of flavor.
