This is also a dish we make in my famiglia's food history! We love to make this all year long with the freshest green beans we can find. My Mammina Loreta prefers to use fresh green board beans as they get buttery and delicious when braised with the tomato and onion, garlic mixture. I always knew Italians and Greeks were closely related siblings :)
