Herbed Green Beans

Last friday Randal came home from work with another huge bag of fresh herbs from Sue. I am so grateful that she shares her homegrown herbs with us because I literally cannot grow a thing!. This time we were lucky to not only get the herbs but she also gave us a recipe for herbed green beans. Fresh green beans are probably Randal's favourite vegetable so I made it the next day, and we both loved this.

Sue - thank you so much, for both the herbs and the recipe!

1 pound green beans, blanched
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced celery
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh basil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Melt butter in a large skillet. Add onion and celery. Saute until soft. Add parsley, basil, rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly for 3 minutes. Gently stir in beans. Cook uncovered until beans are thoroughly heated.
