Sautéed Green Beans with Onions and Garlic


when i first started to cook i assumed everything that tasted good was complicated.  the more spice the better, the longer the list of ingredients the finer, but slowly i learned that that couldn’t be farther from the truth.  and if the idea wasn’t already firmly planted in my head i learned my lesson last sunday when my boyfriend cooked me dinner.

3 ingredients: pasta, velveeta, town house crackers
results: delicious, i was more than tempted to lick my plate

so today when faced with the near daily challenge of cooking dinner i played by the rules…

3 ingredients: green beans, onions, garlic
results: über-scrumptious

Sautéed Green Beans with Onions and Garlic
1 lb green beans
1/2 c onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced

in a large sauté pan heat olive oil over medium heat.  once hot add the onions and garlic, cook for 2 minutes.  in a pot of boiling water cook the green beans for 4 minutes, then remove and add the green beans to the onions and garlic.  season with salt and pepper then let it cook for 2 minutes.

      i was intrigued myself.

      while the pasta is cooking you cut the velveeta into tiny squares and melt it in the microwave. then you combine the pasta and velveeta and add crushed crackers throughout thin with milk/cream if necessary. pour mixture into a baking dish and top with more crackers then bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until hot.

      are you still intrigued?
