  • 4 Italian sausages
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Cook Sausages:
    • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the Italian sausages until browned and cooked through. This usually takes about 12-15 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Garlic Butter Sauce:
    • In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • Add minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Sauté for 1-2 minutes until the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Green Beans:
    • Add the trimmed green beans to the skillet. Cook and toss for about 5-7 minutes until they are crisp-tender and coated with the garlic butter mixture.
  4. Combine with Sausages:
    • Slice the cooked sausages into bite-sized pieces and add them back to the skillet with the green beans.
    • Toss everything together to coat the sausages and green beans in the garlic butter sauce.
  5. Lemon Zest and Juice:
    • Sprinkle lemon zest over the sausages and green beans. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the skillet.
    • Toss again to combine and let it cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  6. Garnish and Serve:
    • Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a burst of freshness and color.
  7. Enjoy!
    • Serve the Garlic Butter Sausages with Lemon Green Beans hot, and savor the delightful combination of savory sausages, garlic butter, and vibrant lemon-infused green beans.
