1 1/2 lb. fresh green beans, tipped and tailed
1 1/2 c. water
Put beans and water in a pot with a lid. Cover. Bring to a boil, turn to low, and simmer about 10 minutes. Drain.
1/4 c. butter
1 tbsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. garlic salt (I usually use garlic powder and salt)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh basic (Dried is fine)
2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved (I have used one regular tomatoes, cut into chunks)
Melt butter in skillet over medium heat. Stir in sugar, salt, garlic, pepper, and basil. Add tomatoes. Cook, stirring gently, just until soft. Pour mixture over beans and toss.
Seriously, this here is what summer is all about. Easy, delicious food.
