  4. Add beans & zucchini/summer squash & sauté for another few minutes.
  5. Add salt/pepper, wine or stock/water & continue to cook until liquid has evaporated & the vegetables are just starting to brown a bit but aren’t mushy.

Cut green beans in half lengthwise, & make a stack of dragon tongue beans & cut into matchsticks on a steep bias.
