Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over a medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the garlic and saute until golden.
Add the tomato halves and reduce the heat to medium-low, stir well, and cover with a lid. Cook for 5 minutes, until the tomatoes are melted into the oil.
Add the green beans and season with salt and pepper. Stir well, lower the heat to a low heat and stir from time to time. The green beans will be ready in 10 minutes.
