Yummy and quick way to cook green beans. Makes a really nice side dish for company dinner. I used canned french beans and it cut the cooking time down to about 10 minutes. I liked the amount of sugar used, but I also added additional amounts of the other spices. I used fresh garlic and basil, and this had a really nice light taste.

I make this frequently. I use fresh or frozen green beans and have subbed diced and seeded roma tomatoes for the cherry tomatoes. Everyone loves it. Plus, it is an excellent way to get that variety of color (that the drs recommend) into your diet. Yum!

So delicous! I should have cooked the green beans a bit longer, but otherwise this was perfect. The seasonings are perfect, and they mesh well with the green beans and the tomatoes. Great recipe, thank you for posting!

Add me to the long list of people who love this recipe! Very easy to put together, and quick to the table. I did use canned veggies, but, sure didn't hurt anything. Served it with Baked Chicken Breasts and baked taters, and it made a really nice dinner. Thanks for sharing a great side, Merlot...We enjoyed very much! Laudee

Made the recipe with fresh green beans & fresh tomatoes. It was easy, colorful and very flavorful! It was a huge hit with my husband and 5 kids. This will definitely be a recipe that will become a regular in my kitchen!

This was easy and yummy. I cooked the beans for 3 mins, because we like them crunchy. It was a very good way to include more veggies in our diet. I shall have to try it with tinned tomatoes.

This was fantastic! And its so simple I'm almost embarrassed that I needed a recipe to do it. My family has never polished off a dish of green beans like that.
