I made these green beans the other day but didn’t have time to post about them.  This is a recipe that is from Cooking Light Magazine and goes with a recipes for Fresh Tomato, Sausage, and Pecorino Pasta.   It instantly became one of my favorite recipes for green beans and I cook them about every week. 

Lemony Green Beans:

Steam 1 pound trimmed green beans 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.  Drain and rise with cold water; drain and place in a bowl.  Add 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind, I tablespoon fresh lemon juice, 1 ½ teaspoons extra virgin olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper, toss well.

 Sorry no pictures,  they basically look like green beans with lemon zest on them. 🙂
