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

What a fabulous recipe to dress up the "regular old" frozen green beans. As the prior reviewer said, "it's full of flavor despite the absesnce of garlic and spices." This recipe is awesome; the three of us wolfed down the entire 2 pounds of beans, along with the other ingredients. It's fresh tasting, and so much better than having just green beans. This is a winner in our family, and the colors will look nice serving it at the holidays. Thanks, Lainey!

Everyone loved this! Raves from a group that demands its beans be crispy! This is reminiscent of a dish I ate years ago at Dookie Chase in NOLA and always wanted to find a recipe for...It's full of flavor despite the absence of garlic and spice. The long braise results in really flavorful beans and the brunoise and tomato result in a wonderful rich broth. So glad I made the full two pounds of beans! Thanks, Lainey.
