Green Bean and Sweet Pepper Saute

Rinse beans in cold water, wash red pepper (orange and yellow peppers work well also, any combo is lovely aesthetically) and slice lengthwise.

Melt two tablespoons butter and/or olive oil with fresh chopped thyme (to taste)

Add the beans and sauté, covered, for 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring regularly

Add the peppers and sauté for an additional 5 minutes (uncovered) or until tender

Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve immediately.
