Spicy Green Beans

Another food related post for you.

Tonight while I was out braving Knowledge Tree to spend my well earned 100$ of classroom money the government gives me, Jake decided to make dinner. We had a great spicy italian sausage and four cheese sauce over rigatoni pasta. He came up with it on his own. With it, we had spicy green beans. I'd been saying we should do them for weeks and finally when we went to our local Lenny's last week, we remembered to get a jar of their hot pepper relish. Jake has been using it for his sandwiches in his lunch and then we used it tonight as well - so I'd say money well spent. The beans tasted fresh but with a kick - if you love spicy food like me, you'll enjoy this mindless way to make a side dish.

You'll need:
Lenny's Hot Pepper Relish (tip: if you don't want to get a whole jar, get a to go cup of it on your way out for free)
Fresh green beans, ends cut off and rinsed

Steam your green beans
Heat a moderate amount of the relish in a pan
Saute the steamed green beans in the relish, long enough to give the beans a wilted appearance
Take the green beans out and pour the heated relish over the beans, tossing to coat

And serve!
