Pesto Green Beans
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
5 ingredients
4 servings
I'm always looking for simple vegetable side dishes for my picky kids. They love this one, and it's quick and really simple. If I know I'm going to be pressed for time, I'll trim the ends of the green beans the night before. Use your favorite jarred pesto. Adapted from Southern Living Ultimate Quick and Easy.
