Judy L’s  Green Bean Dish

1/8 cup olive oil
1 generous tbls. crushed garlic
6 cups green cut beans
2 tbls. chopped fresh rosemary (sometimes basil)
1/3 cup slivered almonds (crushed walnuts or pecans are good for a change) *I like to toast the nuts - Emma’s side note

1/3 cup gorgonzola cheese
1/3 cup dried cranberries
*4-5 slices pre-cooked bacon cut into medium size pieces (optional for a veggie side dish - use the toasted nuts)

Briefly saute garlic in oil
Add beans stir to cover with oil
Add rosemary

Continue to saute, stirring frequently until beans are al dente on medium heat - remember the smoke point of the olive oil)
Stir in bacon*, almonds and cranberries
Turn off heat
Add gorgonzola just before serving.
