  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • ½ medium green bell pepper (chopped)
  • ½ medium red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 28 ounces fire-roasted whole tomatoes, undrained (1 large can)
  • 1 ½ pounds fresh green beans (trimmed)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • Garlic pepper or freshly ground black pepper


  • Heat a large (3 1/2 quart) saucepan over medium-high heat.

  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes break down and the green beans are cooked to your liking, about 15 to 25 minutes.
