    Lainey6605's Note:

    This is a simple, savory green vegetable dish. This recipe can be prepared up to three days in advance (wait to add the parsley until ready to serve). Keep the cooked beans tightly covered in the refrigerator, then reheat on the stovetop or in a 350 degree oven for about 20-30 minutes.

      Excellent and simple. I have made this recipe dozens of times but without the celery and carrot. Sometimes I do use a couple of cloves of garlic, too. One thing that I truly love about this recipe is that it does not need a lot of active time - that is why I often use it for dinner parties - I have a lot of other things to do before serving the dinner. I have used both large and small tomatoes in this and prefer the smaller tomatoes which also do not need to be cut. Thanks for posting, Lainey6605, this is truly a keeper.

      Delicious green beans! I like that I could sneak the carrots and celery in with the green beans and DH also enjoyed them. Had petite diced tomatoes on hand so used those and a red onion. Will be making these a lot! Made and reviewed for Family Picks during ZWT8.

      I used fresh green beans. And used dried parsley. The taste is very good. It's a great recipe that I'll be doing often cause it's very healthy, low calorie. Thanks Lainey :) Made for ZWT8 for Diners, Winers and Chives
