Sauteed Green Beans

Submitted by: BUBBABELLYBGONE

Introduction

I am not one who measures my ingredients a lot - I am more of the cook who chops and dumps into the pot!!!! So I apologize in advance if I am a little off with the amounts/measurements!!!

I buy a lot of my produce fresh from a local stand - so for the green beans, I buy them in the green cardboard box like container. I am guessing there is about 4 cups in there?!?!

This recipe can always be adjusted to taste and seasoning it is up to your imagination!!!
