Buttered Potatoes and French Green Beans

I was in the grocery and saw this pack of french green beans which really looked good. I've never used these kind of beans before. I planned to just blanch it and sauté in garlic and butter. After blanching it i remembered the garlic spread i made and decided to use it instead. I also got a bag of marble potatoes and boiled them till cooked. I used the method of Connie of Pinoycook minus the parsley since the garlic spread already contained parsley. I sautéed both the beans and potatoes separately in the garlic spread and springkled dried rosemary over the potatoes.
The beans were crisp and the potatoes were really tasty. I added some fresh tomatoes and it was done. Great as a side dish and even on its own.
