"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
I lb trimmed green beans
1 pt. cherry or grape tomatoes
2 Tbsp olive oil

Directions:
Directions:
Heat one tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the green beans and cook, without stirring until the bottoms begin to brown (about 1-3 minutes). Turn the heat to low and add the tomatoes. Cover the skillet and cook for an hour or so, stirring occasionally. The beans will be very tender and the tomatoes should start to burst. Remove from the heat and drizzle with the remaining tbsp of olive oil.

Personal Notes:
I also like this dish without the tomatoes. It can cook longer, the key is to keep the temperature low enough that the beans don't burn.
