I have too many long beans growing in my garden besides onions, tomatoes and cubanelle peppers (a great substitute for the red pepper). Thank you for providing this recipe at the perfect time. It is so easy and so delicious. I will blanch and freeze beans and in the winter, cook the rest of the ingredients and add the blanched beans at the end. I hope it is as good.
