Delicious! I used tiny fresh green beans and kalamata olives. The taste is wonderful....with the olives and feta, no real need to add salt. Very colorful dish, and I wish I'd added even more olives and tomatoes!

I was quite sure I would love this dish looking at the ingredients and it did not disappoint! I omitted olive oil and sprayed the pan with non stick cooking spray and omitted olives and instantly the dish was quite low cal./fat. I loved especially the feta cheese on top of the beans, just such a nice change of pace. I used fresh beans. Thanks for sharing.
