SAUTÉED STRING BEANS WITH HEIRLOOM TOMATO MARINARA SAUCE

SAUTÉED STRING BEANS WITH HEIRLOOM TOMATO MARINARA SAUCE

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups halved heirloom cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of filtered water
  • 4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 giant handful of fresh basil leaves, ripped
  • sea salt and coarse ground pepper to taste
  • 2 cups of fresh green beans, end snipped

In a large sauté skillet heat the olive oil, garlic and shallots over a low flame. Cook through for about 3-5 minutes. Add in the cherry tomatoes, parsley, sea salt and pepper. Simmer on medium-low for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. *If you are using this marinara recipe for pasta or another dish, through in the basil, stir and it is ready to be served.

Once the tomatoes have simmered for a bit, add in the water, fresh basil and green beans. Turn the heat up to medium and sauté for about 5-7 minutes or until the beans are cooked through {cover with a lid if necessary}. Eat ASAP – so yummy and so perfect for a light summer meal.
