this looks absolutely delicious. i grow a few yards worth of shell beans each summer and sauteed in olive oil and some cracked pepper is always a favorite dish.

Allison, thanks for your note. Yes, these beans are so simple—humble, even—and yet when they're cooked fresh like this they can be very nuanced. This dish shows what I call "the magic of three:" a main element (beans), a main complement (garlic), and a third, bright element that rounds these out (pepper). The fruity oil helps, too, though it tends to stay in the background.
