Ingredients

Preparation

Cut stems from green beans; either leave them whole or cut in half on a diagonal.

In a large, heavy bottomed sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add green beans and stir fry until bright green and tender, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on how tender you like them. Turn up the heat to medium-high and continue cooking until beans begin to sizzle and brown in spots, about 2 minutes more. Add garlic and Italian seasoning; stir fry for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper.

Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, if desired.
