PRHthe menu This old family recipe is a neighborhood favorite and so easy to make. Fry garlic to a golden brown in olive oil. Then chop potatoes and string beans. Add some water to a pot and let it simmer. Squeeze in a couple of fresh tomatoes and cook it for about an hour until soft. Add salt, pepper and chopped fresh Italian parsley. A loaf of crusty Italian bread rounds out the meal.
