    PanNan's Note:

    This recipe was adapted from a recipe posted in the Houston Chronicle. The key is to make the tomato sauce separately and serve on top of the beans. This method keeps the green beans crisp tender, and a bright green color. When the tomatoes and beans are cooked together the acidity turns the beans a dark olive color.

      A great new way to have green beans! I loved the tomato mixture and thought the flavors were paired well with green beans. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT9 and the Soup-A-Stars

      A simply wonderful vegetable dish!! Made the sauce in advance and put it together with the beans near dinner time. Did not add or leave out a thing. One thing I did different was that I added half of the parsley when cooking and the other half just before serving. Thanks Nan!!

      Not sure why, but this flopped for me. I followed the recipe exactly except I steamed my green beans instead of boiling them. The flavors in the tomato sauce didn't mix well in my opinion, and the mint kinda competed with the other herbs rather than enhancing them.
