Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Add beans and cook for 3 minutes. Drain.
Meanwhile, place a large non-stick or well seasoned pan over medium heat. When hot, add beans and garlic. Drizzle with olive oil, toss several times to coat. The garlic should get a little golden but not burn. Season with salt and pepper.
