Garlic Herb Romanos

Perusing the frozen vegetable section at Trader Joe's, I stumbled upon these intriguing beans.

A simple skillet side dish seemed the best use of them.  So yummy and so easy!

Garlic Herb Romano Beans

1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons butter or trans fat free margarine
1 (1-pound) package frozen romano beans
2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs (I used thyme and rosemary)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add oil and butter or margarine and cook until bubbly.  Stir in beans and cook, stirring occasionally, 10 to 15 minutes, until defrosted and warmed through.

Add herbs, salt, and pepper to skillet and cook, stirring gently, 2 more minutes.  Serve immediately.  Makes 4 (3/4-cup) servings, 1 point plus for Weight Watchers or 50 calories each.
