Basil Sesame Green Beans

My husband says this is a "restaurant quality" side dish. We really loved them.

4-1/2 cups cut fresh green beans (I just used a bag of frozen green beans)
1 to 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
3 tablespoons olive oil
4-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh basil or 1-1/4 teaspoons dried basil
4 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted


Place the beans in a saucepan and cover with water; add the salt. Bring to a boil;
cover and cook for 7-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and place in a serving
bowl. Add the onion, oil, basil and sesame seeds; toss to coat.
