Ingredients
  • 2 pounds green beans, ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup white wine

Add the green beans to a large pot of boiling salted water. Cook until bright green, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove green beans from the boiling water and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Drain well.

In a large heavy skillet, melt butter. Saute the shallot over medium heat until soft. Add red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and green beans. Toss together cooking for a minute more. Add the white wine and tomato and cook until the wine has reduced; about 3 minutes. Add the basil and season with salt and pepper, to taste
