Braised Green Beans & Summer Vegetables

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/braised_green_beans_summer_vegetables.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2009

When green beans, summer squash and cherry tomatoes are plentiful in backyard gardens and farmers' markets, try this quick braise. We like the salty, nutty flavor of Parmesan, but you can use any flavorful cheese.

6 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and oregano and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add wine (or broth) and bring to a boil. Add green beans, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring once or twice. Add summer squash (or zucchini) and tomatoes and continue cooking until the vegetables are tender, 8 to 10 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan.
