Pesto Green Beans

Pesto Green BeansGreen beans have been on sale at our local grocery store for about three weeks running. We have, let's just say, an abundance of green beans in our house right now. Adam deserves the credit for this recipe as I'm not sure I ever would have thought to put a green sauce on green beans. Had I never tried it, though, I'd have missed out on a very nice side dish.

12 oz green beans
¼ c Spinach-Walnut Pesto
1 T butter
2 T water
  1. Steam beans for 4-6 min or until just tender.
  2. Stir together beans, pesto, butter, and water over medium heat. Simmer until thickened (about 5 min).
  3. Serve immediately.
