This dish can become the foundation for year-round dinners. Add fresh herbs during summer and dried thyme or oregano when it's cold. Stir in a grating of hard cheese, such as Parmigiano-Reggiano, grana Padano or Pecorino Romano. You can use shelled edmame (Japanese green soybeans) instead of green beans. A grated carrot salad adds colour to the menu.
