This was fabulously tasty and easy! I used fresh green beans and that seemed to make a real difference! I didn't have garlic salt so I used garlic powder instead. The combination of butter, sugar, basil and garlic is quite outstanding, and perfect for tomatoes and beans. This makes 4 really generous servings, but even so, this recipe is guaranteed to be gobbled whole... it's really exceptional. Thanks Merlot, this one will be a regular!
I loved the flavor of this dish and it looks beautiful on the table. I only added a half teaspoon of sugar, as I was afraid it would be too sweet for our tastes, and it was just perfect. Great recipe, thanks for posting!
AWESOME!!! I agree with all the other reviewers.
I agree with all the reviews, this is super! The ultimate test was my husband, who doesn't like tomatoes... he said it was VERY good!!
This was a great side dish! I do not expect my son to eat his beans, so when he finished these off, I was shocked! The basil and garlic was not too over powering (because of the sugar?) Yet the flavors all came together to enhanse the flavor of the tomatoes??? I am still not sure why these beans tasted so good to my son, or to myself. I will have to repeat this recipe many times to figure it out I guess.
This dish is delicious. I used a combination of fresh and canned green beans. Everyone enjoyed this, inlcuding one very picky eater. Served it with fresh tuna steaks. Thanks, Merlot!
These are the best green beans I have ever tasted!!!
What a great, light green bean dish! Perfect side dish for heavy meals. I could actually just eat a bowl of this and be happy! I boiled the green beans (in batches since I doubled it), added the ingredients to the fry pan, stirred a little bit, threw in the halved cherry tomatoes and any juice, swished around, then folded in the green beans. There is not a lot of sauce, but it's enough to coat the beans and give them a great flavor. Then I repeated it, threw the whole thing in a bowl and it stayed warm until the turkey was carved. Thank you!
Thanks, Merlot, for this wonderful recipe. I always have trouble with side dishes but this one was so colorful and the spices and tomatos really jazzed it up!
What a pretty and yummy dish. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting.
