Milk Street Recipe

Green Beans with Fennel-Tomato Sauce

50 minutes

This is our take on Italian fagiolini alla fiorentina, a delicious dish that unfortunately often results in the green beans turning army green. In our version, the green beans keep their vibrant color while melding with the flavors of an herb- and fennel-infused tomato sauce. The sauce can be simmered with the herbs, garlic and wine, then cooled and refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two days. When you're ready to serve, combine the blanched beans, the tomato sauce and the stock in a large pot and simmer as instructed.
