Green Beans Tomato Sauce Recipe
One of my favorite springtime dishes: green beans tomato sauce. And that tomato sauce has to be spiced and seasoned properly, with all kinds of rich and flavorful goodies. We normally use flat beans , but if you can’t get hold of those, use skinny ones. Just keep in mind that flat beans cook a bit longer.
Pair it with jasmine or basmati rice , taste so much better and will make a great dinner.
