Pesto Green Beans


Do you ever buy green beans in a bag?  Oh you don't??  Oh you hand select them and wash and trim each one??  Oh.  You're better than me.  Well, I occasionally (all of the time) buy the pre-washed, pre-trimmed beans in a bag.  So there.  And they're delicious, especially if you make them all fancy.  

Last night I melted a tablespoon of butter in a skillet, added a Dorot cube of garlic and a cube of basil (if you can't find these miracle cubes, you could use minced garlic and finely chopped fresh basil, about a teaspoon of each) and 1/4 cup of pine nuts.  I sauteed that until the pine nuts started to toast...

Then I microwaved the bag of green beans for 3 minutes (you heard me) and threw them into the skillet, tossing them until they were coated with the butter/herb/garlic/pine nut mixture.  A little salt and pepper, Parmesan cheese on top - Pesto Green Beans.  The perfect shortcut side.
