A two for one! This skillet combines red potatoes and whole green beans with a WHOLE head of garlic. That means you get to sneak those greens in there without even using an extra dish. I like to serve this along side roasted chicken or beef of some kind, its a nice color combo and brightens up the plate. Just an easy, simple side to go with just about any main you can dish out.
