This was a nice change of pace from the usual green beans I make. I love tomatoes, so it was nice to have them along with the green beans. Only thing is there was too much liquid, not sure if I was suppose to drain the beans at the end, but then I felt you wouldn't get the tomato flavor enough. I used fresh green beans and fresh herbs from my garden. Next time I will use a little more herbs, felt it could have been a little more flavorful or maybe use the flavored diced tomatoes.
