Last week I was looking for a side dish to serve with the Rosemary Meatballs that I had pulled from the freezer. The first time I served the meatballs I made some broccoli & bow-tie pasta. This time around I wanted something different, but I did want green. And it doesn't get much more green than green beans, right? This recipe is from the April 2007 Everyday Food. It was quick, easy, and delicious- everything I find important in a side dish.
