Blue Ribbon Recipe

A colorful green bean side dish that goes with just about anything. For testing, we opted to use fresh green beans, but in a pinch frozen will work too. We enjoyed the taste of the fresh garlic and the sun-dried tomatoes with the green beans. You can serve this side dish at a dinner party, as part of a holiday meal, or just because it's Friday.
