This is a colorful side dish for your dinner table and a nice way to get some flavor into plain green beans. In step 1. I did not add the olive oil since you did not saute anything with it. Mexican oregano was the type I added when making this. Made for *August Recipe Challenge Green Beans and Basil 2009* game

Loved this combination, although I used 2 tablepoons minced garlic "by accident", and loved the garlic's wallop. DH volunteered to trim the green beans next time, otherwise this is a cinch to make, and it is sooooo-ooo-oo good. This is part of a now favorite menu with Acadia's Chicken Parmesan and Mom's Mashed Potatoes. Thanks for posting this recipe, kittycatmom! Made for Potluck Tag for Karen Elizabeth's "Eat Your Veggies" party.

Tasty, easy, healthy, and attractive! I made as posted except I simmered the beans 25 minutes and cut them into 1 inch lengths so that I could poke them back down into sauce. Thanks for sharing kittycatmom!

very good, I had to use frozen green beans from last summer's crop, I allowed the tomato mixture to simmer for about 30 minutes before adding in the beans and I sauteed and onion with the fresh garlic in oil first, I didn't use the dry onion flakes, I also added in 1 teaspoon crushed chili flakes for some heat, this made a nice dish, thanks for sharing Kitty!

These were very good. I made them with fresh canned tomatoes from our garden instead of the tomato soup. Very fresh and tasty. Thanks for posting!

This was very good even without the dried onion flakes. To compensate for not having them, I used sauteed onions. Thanks for posting. Made for Feb. 2009 Potluck tag.
