Healthy Recipe: Green Bean and Tomato Saute

Another great recipe from a WW cookbook. We had this a few times in the past and I kind of forgot about it, but it's yummy!

Green Bean and Tomato Saute
1 pound green beans, trimmed and halved
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large shallot, finely chopped
3 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped (I like to use grape or cherry tomatoes, too)
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the green beans, return to a boil and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain.

2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over med.-high heat, then add the garlic and shallot. Saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and sugar; saute until slightly softened, about 2 minutes. Add the green beans, vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper. Saute until heated through, about 2 minutes.
