Easy and tasty recipe for green beans... one of the few veggies everyone in my family eats. I only used a 14.5 oz can of tomatoes (Italian stewed tomatoes because that's all I had). I think a 28 oz can would have been too much tomato for us. Left out the olives too. So it was probably a bit more of an Italian flavor than Greek. I think I'll use regular diced tomatoes next time. Thanks... it will be a "regular" recipe!
