Green Beans, Hazelnuts and Shallots

Another super simple recipe that's also low in calories!

1 1/2 Lbs Trimmed Green Beans
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
2 Large Shallots, Thinly Sliced
1/2 Cup Hazelnuts, Roughly Chopped (What in the heck does roughly chopped mean? I say just chop the dang things up and be done with it! (lol) )
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/8 Tsp Pepper
As always, if you like things spicy, add cayenne pepper to taste.

*  Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.  Add beans, returning to a boil and cook for about 3-4 minutes, until crisp-tender.  Remove to a bowl filled with ice water to cool, then drain and set aside.

*  In a saute pan, melt butter over medium heat.  Add the shallots and hazelnuts, cooking for about 3-4 minutes until the shallots are softened.  Stir in cooked beans, salt and pepper.  Stir until the beans are warmed through and you're all set!

Yummy, Yummy!
