Everyone really liked this pairing of green beans and tomatoes. It was especially effective because I made this in December--everyone thought it was festive even though I had not thought about that when choosing the recipe!

Made this on Wed. and it was GREAT my son loved the tomatoes and ate some of the beans (all of which were fresh picked). He says the beans were ok, but that's pretty high praise from Sam.

Excellent recipe. Everybite was eaten. My DH had thirds! I didn't have any cherry tomatoes but i had some romas out of the garden, I cut them in eigths and when i sauteed them they fell apart pretty quickly but the flavor was excellent. Will definitely use cherry or grape tomatoes next time for texture and appearance.

This has got to be the ultimate green bean recipe. Great eye appeal and so very easy to prepare but with an abundance of flavor. I did cut back on the sugar just a touch. Another winner Merlot. Thanks!

OMG! What a simple, tasty and elegant side dish. We absolutely love this! I used fresh basil and minced garlic. I'll be making this often.

Really nice flavor and such a pretty dish. I used fresh green beans and a can of diced tomatoes. Can't wait to try it when my own tomotoes are ripe!

I used 2 cloves fresh pressed garlic, substituted Splenda for the sugar, 1/2t dried basil for fresh(it's late winter here) and used 3/4lb fresh green beans. I'm not sure how many pints 2c of tomatoes are, but 2c are what I used. Excellent!

I wasn't sure whether this would be all that good, even with all the ratings. Well, now I believe. This was absolutely delicious. I didn't use all of of it up the first nite, and warmed the leftovers the next nite, and it was even better if that's possible. I did use Splenda, and I substituted canned beans and canned stewed tomatoes, because I had them on hand. The only thing I'll change the next time is to double up everything but the canned tomatoes. Thanks, Merlot, for a new weekly recipe.
