Italian Green Beans

I came up with this yesterday and Andrew insisted I write it down - he loved them! Measurements are approximate - adjust to your taste.

2-3 c. fresh green beans, washed & snapped into about 2 in. pieces
1/2 of an onion (I used sweet) sliced
2 Tb. oil
1 1/2 tsp. italian seasoning
1/2 - 3/4 c. chicken stock
salt & pepper to taste
1 Tb. butter

Saute greeen beans & onion in the oil until onions tender. Add seasonings. Add about 1/2 the chicken stock and allow bean and onions to simmer until liquid is nearly gone. Toss occasionally. Add rest of chicken stock and butter and again allow to simmer - test for desired doneness. Make 4 servings.

Would also be good w/diced tomatoes - fresh or canned (drained).
