Fagiolini nel Autunno
Fill a 2 quart pot of salted water to a boil.
Add the string beans and blanch until the beans are almost cooked, approximately 4 minutes.
Drain the beans into a colander, then transfer into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.
Heat a 10 inch sauté pan over medium heat. Add enough Bellucci EVOO to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the onion, peppers, garlic, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper. Sauté 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are tender.
Add tomatoes and cook just until they begin to wilt and give off their juices.
Remove green beans from ice-bath and add to the sauté pan. Continue cooking to rewarm the beans.
Remove the garlic clove and discard.
Drizzle with Bellucci EVOO and serve immediately.
