I had some beans I got from the farmer's market that I needed to use up. I used a little extra butter and garlic because I had more beans than called for. I also used a natural sugar substitute. They were great. Even my picky DD said "You need to save this recipe!" Served with Grilled Chicken.

I made these last night. I loved them! They taste very fresh and adding just a bit of sugar and warming the cherry tomatoes is amazing.

Wonderful! If you have a child who will not eat his/her veggies, this is your recipe. My 3 yr old refuses to eat any green vegetables...NOT anymore! He loves these green beans!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this simple, yet great, recipe!

Really flavorful - I used blanched, frozen green beans from my mother-in-law's farm and they tasted really fresh and not too soft. The tomatoes added a nice acidic touch to the sweetness of the beans and the garlic and basil really added a lot of flavor.

Super easy to prepare and delicious! I steam fresh green beans in the microwave (~ 4 minutes, until crisp tender) then add to the fry pan. Great combination of ingredients and the contrasting red/green colors are what make this side dish stand out. Thanks Merlot!!
