Ugly Green Beans (UGB)

Beautiful, fresh green beans. Washed and ready.
You might wonder how a green bean could ever be called ugly. Green beans are perfectly beautiful, right? Fresh, velvety, crisp and green with their tiny curled tips just waiting for a quick blanch then a roll in olive oil and a whole busload of slivered garlic…now that is a beautiful, beautiful thought.

But UGB (Ugly Green Beans)? Well folks, this is a recipe many of you already know about, but still stands to be mentioned for the benefit of the unenlightened. You see, I’m tired.
