Tropical Green Beans

I could eat these all day. 

4 T olive oil
1 lb fresh green beans, cleaned, cut, and dried
1 small yellow onion
6 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 t salt
2 T balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, diced
2 t toasted pine nuts
freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Brush a large baking dish with 2 T of olive oil.  Put green beans, onion, and garlic in the dish, drizle with remaining oil and sprinkle with salt.  Bake for 25 minutes, stirring beans at least 3 times.  When tender, remove beans from oven and transfer to bowl.  Immediately drizzle with vinegar.  Add tomatoes, pine nuts and pepper, to taste, and toss.
