These were so wonderful. I made ngethem exactly as written and wouldn't change one thing. I would have never thought of using beans and tomatoes together. Thank you.

I liked this side dish - it was different a fun way to combine green beans and tomatoes. Instead of using garlic salt, I used a homemade garlic/salt/pepper combo and fresh basil instead of dried. I might cut back the sugar just a tiny bit but it was good with the full amount too.

Thought they were wonderful. The family said they were great and would like them again soon. What a great way to use up cherry tomatoes in the summer.

I really liked the flavor of this dish. The sweetness is a nice incentive to get my family to eat their veggies and the basil and garlic add nice spice so the sugar isn't overwhelming. I did have to add a tad bit more butter before adding the tomatoes because the sugar and spices did end up in large clumps for some reason. Other than that small problem, I consider this a winner because I didn't have to beg anyone to eat their vegetables! I used grape tomatoes and Green Giant fresh cut whole green beans. My family picked around the tomatoes, but I expected that! As for me, I cleaned up all the leftover beans and tomatoes.

This was fabulous. The flavors blended so well together. I used fresh beans, fresh basil & fresh tomatoes. I found it to be almost sinful that something so healthy could be so good!!!! DH whoofed alot down, which makes me feel very happy, because he's very bad about eating his vegs. Thanks Merlot for this tasty side dish.

This is a wonderful recipe! It's so easy to prepare and the finished product is so pretty. The flavors blend nicely and nothing is overpowering. Other than the facts that I used frozen french cut beans and Roma tomatoes, I followed the recipe. I think that I'll take this for my lunch tomorrow. :) Thank you for this recipe! (I wish that I had seen this recipe before Christmas - it would have looked nice on the table!).

Very easy and tasty! Nice presentation. I used both fresh beans and tomatoes, and the result was very good. Nice side dish for summer barbecues.
