  • ( Scored on 0 reviews )

October is here, and although fall is definitely not everyone's favorite season, we have smiles on our faces because one of our most beloved vegetables is finally back in all its freshness: green beans (or string beans), have made their appearance again! 

Pugliese-style green beans are a simple, healthy side dish from the Apulian culinary tradition.

It can be made in just a few steps and is ideal  to accompany a second course of meat, fish, or can be used as a sauce for pasta.

The flavor of the dish is given by the accompaniment of peeled tomatoes seasoned with extra virgin olive oil, garlic, hot pepper and fresh parsley.

Pugliese style green beans can be served warm or cold and if prepared in advance they can be kept in the fridge for two days.

Versatile, yummy, colorful and simply yummy....Buon appetito!
