Favorite Recipe Friday!

One of the items on our 2013 bucket list was to try a new recipe once a week.  Well... we haven't done that yet, but I do have one of our favorite healthy recipes to share:

Shrimp over Green Beans
sorry the picture isn't great!

This recipe replaces pasta with green beans and is so good!  Pasta may sound better, but I promise you that you don't miss it at all in this! 

1-1 1/2 pounds of uncooked shrimp (peeled, deveined and no tails)
16oz-18oz fresh green beans 
1/3 cup of olive oil
1 bunch of fresh basil (sometimes  I just use dried)
2-3 tomatoes - diced into small pieces 
1 tbs of chopped garlic
1/2-1 cup of freshly grated pecorino romano cheese 

Cook the green beans in about a 1/3 of a cup of water bring to a boil and lower heat to a simmer cook until desired firmness or softness.  Add garlic, chopped tomatoes, basil and cleaned shrimp to heated pan of olive oil, cook until shrimp is pink and firm sprinkle with 1/4cup of the cheese, drain the beans and put in a serving bowl pour the shrimp mixture over the beans and sprinkle more cheese. 

We like to enjoy this recipe with a nice bottle of wine.  

Do you have any good recipes for us to try?
