A light green or purple bean that is similar to a common green bean except that it is flatter in shape and broader in dimension. Very similar to a traditional string bean or green bean, the Italian Flat Bean can be substituted in almost any recipe using string or green beans. Italian Flat Beans can be eaten raw as a side dish or added as an ingredient to casseroles and other vegetable dishes. Do not overcook the Italian Flat Bean since it may cause the beans to become soft and quite mushy. Italian Flat Beans may also be referred to as Romano beans, snap beans or simply Italian Green Beans.
