Green Beans with Tomatoes and Bacon

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Crabbycakes

This is a tasty low-fat side dish. If you want a little more flavor,(and a few more calories) add a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil when you add the green beans.

This was just OK. I think the can stewed tomatoes was a bit overpowering for the beans.
