Garlicky Green Beans

1 lb. green beans (I used frozen french style from Trader Joes)
1 tbsp. olive oil
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 c. red wine (I used cooking sherry)

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the green beans, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir to coat and saute for about 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook an additional 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes until the wine has condensed and beans get a little color to them. If using fresh green beans, you'll need to steam them slightly before adding them to the pan. Makes about 4 servings.

Notes: I love buying the big bag of green beans from Trader Joes and this is by far my favorite way to prepare them. They come out so yummy and full of flavor!
