Green Beans with Spicy Tomato Sauce

spicy_green_beans

Time for the January installation of Random Recipes!  This month the amazing Dom of Belleau Kitchen challenged us to try a recipe from a friend’s cookbook, which worked out perfectly.  For the past few weeks one of my coworkers had been talking about a new cookbook she got and how I had to give it a try.  After telling her about the challenge this month she brought the cookbook right in and started showing me all the recipes from it that I had to try.  Up until she brought in Jamie Oliver’s Great Britain cookbook I had no idea what the book would be, and got quite the kick out of it being a British cookbook since the challenge this month was inspired by UK based Dom being in the US visiting family.  I had my co-worker pick my recipe and she selected the Green Beans with Spicy Tomato Sauce which I had no objections with, outside of one slight dietary tweak.   I also had to figure out what a “knob” of butter was since that is not a standard US measurement.

I’m not sure how knob-like my knob was but this recipe was delicious!  Everything came together so quickly and the sauce had just the right amount of oomph.  I also have a feeling that this sauce would go great with zucchini or squash – maybe even tofu!   I can’t wait to see what other recipes this amazing cookbook has, hopefully my coworker will let me borrow it for a little bit longer.
