  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

In a large saucepan, combine the green beans, oil, water, salt, and crushed red pepper. Cover and cook over medium heat, turning the beans often, for 8 to 12 minutes or until the beans are still bright green but tender. Remove from the pan and serve at once.
