Green Beans

Today's favorite easy dinner: Green beans with garlic, crushed red pepper, and mozzarella
It's super simple. I start by slicing up a clove or two of garlic, and simmering it in olive oil on the stove. A few minutes later add the crushed red pepper, and then frozen green beans. By the time the beans are thawed and warmed all the way through, the garlic is nice and tender and has sweetened up a bit. Both the garlic and the crushed red infuse the oil with their flavors, and it's all around good. To top things off I pile on the mozzarella cheese, which balances out any over-spiciness from the crushed red. And really, who doesn't love cheese?
