The green beans used in this dish should be slender and stringless. They appear in many recipes in Liguria, including several for savory tarts, but their principal use is as a light and tasty accompaniment for meat dishes. In the version given here, the rather sweet taste of this vegetable and the contrasting distinct sharp flavor of the anchovies are blended with butter.
1 1/4 lb green beans, trimmed
1 sprig parsley
1/2 garlic clove
3 anchovy fillets
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons butter

Cook the beans in a saucepan of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 20 minutes. Finely chop the parsley with the garlic and anchovies. Sauté parsley mixture in a large skillet with the oil and butter until the anchovies disintegrate completely. Add the beans; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook 2 to 3 minutes longer. Serve hot.
