Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Wrap the whole bulb of garlic in a pouch of aluminum foil, making sure to tightly crimp the edges all around. Place the garlic in a metal baking pan and roast for 1 1/4 hours. Remove the garlic from the oven and let cool.
  3. Cut in half through the equator and squeeze out the pulp into a medium-large bowl. Add the butter to the bowl and mash together with the garlic pulp. Set aside at room temperature.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a pot of salted water to a boil.
  5. Trim the ends of the beans. Add the beans to the boiling water and cook over high heat until the beans are just tender, about 6 minutes. Immediately drain the beans in a colander, shaking off any excess water.
  6. Add the beans to the bowl with the garlic butter and toss quickly. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
