Holiday Green Beans
with Pistachio Pesto

Holiday Green Beans

Holiday Green Beans with Pesto Pasta is a delightfully different side dish for the holidays.



  1. Heat oil in large nonstick sauté pan. Add onion and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until softened and just beginning to brown.
  2. Add bacon and cook one minute longer.
  3. Add beans and bell pepper and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until beans are tender but still bright green.
  4. Crumble the pesto over the beans and toss evenly to distribute.
  5. Serve immediately.

Yield: 8 servings

* I used 1 24 ounce package TJ’s frozen green beans FYI – thawed but not blanched.
