Fagiolini e Pinoli - Green Beans and Pine Nuts
From Nicole Kammerer
2 lbs. haricots verts or regular green beans
extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion or 3 small shallots, finely sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 c. pine nuts
Wash and trim the beans, then steam them for approximately 5 minutes or cook them in a large pot of boiling, salted water. Drain thoroughly, then pat dry. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, cook the onions or shallots until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and beans and cook over medium heat until the beans are just tender. Add the pine nuts and salt to taste.
