In a medium saucepan
, bring the chicken broth to a boil. In a large pot over medium heat, pour the olive oil
to cover the bottom of the pot and saute the sausage
, garlic and onions until they start to get soft. Now, add the raw green beans and keep turning them over until they are all coated. Cook for 5 minutes, and then add the chicken broth. Simmer
until the beans are very tender, 45 minutes to an hour. Season with the salt and pepper and serve immediately.
