The store had no Romano beans so I used green beans and also used white balsamic vinegar. One thing that I will do differently next time is to steam them in the microwave as I know exactly how long it takes to cook them the way we like them. I overcooked the beans a bit today but that's not the recipe's fault. I'd recommend that you use a good-quality olive oil as it's an important element of this recipe. I will not put the beans in a bag the next time as too much of the garlic-mint-oil mixture stuck to the side of the bag making it difficult to get out. Simple yet elegant presentation for a side dish/salad that can be made early in the day. Will be making this a lot definite keeper!
I followed the recipe maybe added a bit more garlic and a bit more mint. Here's a tip: Use the mortar and pestle on the mint garlic and salt first then add the oil. I served the finished dish warm and had left overs cold 4 hours later. The recipe is significantly better with age very much like pickling. Overall the recipe was really good. Don't over cook the beans err on the under done side. Otherwise an excellent recipe.
