Sautéed Garlic Green Beans

This dish is simple enough for you to prepare daily, and you’ll never tire of eating these beans, either straight from the pan or on a plate for dinner. For larger parties or holidays, double the recipe, but make the beans a pound at a time; they won’t cook perfectly if overcrowded in the pan.
