Green Beans with Basil

A friend of mine made this for a Christmas dinner and I had to have seconds. Great for entertaining, but easy enough for a week night dinner as well.

1 lb Fresh Green Beans
1/4 c Water
3 T Butter (or olive oil)
1/2 c Onion, finely chopped
1/4 c Celery, finely chopped
1 Garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 t Fresh rosemary, minced (or 1/2 t dried rosemary)
1 1/2 t Fresh Basil, minced (or 1/2 t dried basil)

Place beans and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook, uncovered for 7 minutes until crisp-tender. Drain; add the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook for 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Beans $2.00 (C0stc0)
Butter $.15 (Aldi's)
Onion $.25 (Meijer)
Celery $.25 (Aldi's)
Rosemary - from garden
Basil - from garden
