Fresh green beans in January are terrible so I bought frozen and then found your recipe...we just LOVED it. The addition of the feta produced a very rich tasting dish. I switched the oregano for basil simply because I had marinated chicken in oregano, lemon, and garlic before I found your recipe (and didn't want to go into oregano overdrive). Next time (and there will be many next times) I will use the oregano, it will definitely produce the requisite Greek flavour. Thank you for the marvelous recipe!

I'm on a bit of a Greek Odyssey at present, reliving my past! This was so good, and easy, and I don't like green beans! I can't remember when I last bought and enjoyed beans, but I did enjoy these. However I do love tomatoes, olives and fetta, and they bought out the best in those beans! Had these with Garlic Potatoes, and Greek Style Chicken for an unbelievable dinner.

I made this for the first time for company tonight and it was such a hit, the lady asked me for the recipe. The only thing I did different was added about a 1/4 tsp. of salt and allowed all of it to simmer for about 30 min. to allow the flavors to blend.
