Green Beans in Tomato Sauce

This is a ridicolously easy and fulfilling dish. All you need to do is make a simple tomato sauce, boil the beans, mix them together, serve them with crusty bread and voila’ a lovely starter or a side dish. My mum used to make it often. My sister Virginia suggests the use of cherry tomatoes for the sauce instead of passata…she is probably right…

- green beans
- passata
- garlic
- olive oil
- salt

1) clean and boil the beans

2) fry the garlic in a little oil then add the passata and salt and let it cook on moderate heat for 20 mins

3) mix the beans with the tomato sauce and serve with some crusty bread. Enjoy!
