Delicious side dish that looks attractive enough and interesting enough to serve to company. I used the skinny-skinny green beans that I’m able to buy at the equivalent of Costco, called Price Smart in South America.  Maybe they are French-style green beans...not sure, but they are the best green beans ever.  So tender and no strings attached, if you know what I mean, and no need to remove strings.  I am all for that.  It is still a bit of work to cut the ends of each green bean, but better than having to remove strings as well, and that's not always a perfect solution either...as often some strings remain.

1 lb green beans (0.45 kg)
2 tbsp butter (30 mL)
11/cups chopped onion (300 mL)
1 red, yellow, OR orange bell pepper, chopped
4 tsp crushed garlic (20 mL)
1 tsp salt (5 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (2 mL) 

Remove tips from both ends of green beans and cut into reasonable lengths.  In large pot with cold water, place green beans and bring to the boil.  Boil around 10 minutes, or until tender.  Drain in a colander over a bowl.

In nonstick frying pan in butter, over medium high heat, cook onions until translucent and beginning to brown.  Add bell peppers and cook about 3 to 5 minutes over medium heat.  Add garlic and cook a couple of minutes until browning.  Add green beans and toss to coat.  Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.  Cook a little to heat the green beans again.
