  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 15m

Makes 8 servings Tip: For optimum taste, choose only the finest natural pistachios. Bazzini's uses only the largest California pistachios that are roasted in small batches to ensure the best flavor.


  • 1 1/2 pounds small slender green beans, ends trimmed
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup chopped natural pistachios
  • 1/4 cup canned reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs


Cook green beans in large pot of boiling salted water until just

crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain very well. (Can be made

3 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)

Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic,

lemon peel and rosemary and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Add pistachios, broth and green beans. Toss until broth reduces and

sauce clings to beans, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with lemon juice.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer beans to

large shallow bowl. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and serve.
