Grilled Romano Beans
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
11 ingredients
4 servings
My husband came home yesterday with green Romano beans he bought at our local farmers' market and I was thrilled because we don't see them too often! What a rare treat! As far as preparing the beans, simple and quick is best and I usually steam or lightly sautè however this time I tried a stove top grill pan. If you are fortunate to find (or grow) yellow or purple Romano beans, replace a portion of the green ones for yellow/purple beans in this recipe. The garlic is my addition as is the cheese and although the latter is my contribution it is optional. *Be careful how much you salt the beans especially if you are adding the optional cheese- remember the cheese is salty, too.* Perfect all on its own, as a side dish, or as a delicious ingredient in warm weather salads or arranged over fresh pasta.
