Green Beans: Fagiolini in Padella
In a 12 to 14-inch saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat until just smoking. Add the onion, garlic, chile flakes, and mint and cook 1 minute. Add beans, toss to mix well and cook until beans are soft, about 15 minutes, stirring regularly. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
