This year, my garden was overflowing with green beans.  We eat a lot of green beans in our house so I always plant a lot.  These super easy Italian Marinated Green Beans is one of my favorite ways to prepare them.

This “recipe” is the same as my Italian Marinated Snap Peas.  As they say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”   Right?!?  This is an easy recipe to make for a Labor Day cookout!  It’s fast, healthy and quite tasty!
