To turn green beans with almonds into a main course, I tossed in a couple handfuls of wheat pasta - it goes well with these flavors.
Warning: if you like your beans crunchy, then you know how to alter.
- 3 c. fresh green beans, ends snapped off
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 2 T. e.v. olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3 handfuls of corkscrew wheat pasta (about 1 c.)
- 1/2 c. chopped almonds, toasted
If you're not a vegetarian, you would probably be interested in adding bacon or using bacon grease in this recipe!
