This recipe is from my dear MIL - a woman who can make the simple great. I like to serve them with baked chicken and white rice.

Have to be honest this did not work for me. I thought it would be more flavorful but it's not. Made as directed. It is easy to make. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In 3 qt saucepan, saute onion in olive oil until tender, about 5 minutes, over medium heat.
  2. Add minced garlic, stir & cook 30 seconds.
  3. Add green beans, turn heat to high and stir quickly for about 1 minute.
  4. Add tomato sauce and enough water to almost cover beans.
  5. Add parsley, cumin, sugar, salt and pepper.
  6. Cover pot and simmer on medium heat for about 25 minutes.
  7. If it seems too watery, cook uncovered for 10 minutes. There should be about 1/3 to 1/2 the amount of liquid you started with.
