Meanwhile, cook the garlic and remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until garlic turns slightly yellow.
Add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and saute over high heat for 1 minute.
Cook the pasta according to package directions, along with the green beans in the same pot. Drain and toss with the tomatoes.
