Not your usual green beans, but so great and easy. I had these as a side at a restaurant in Atlanta and have re-created this version.

YUM! This was amazing, and I am not a fan of green beans :)) This was so lovely, and so good, I added a bit of greek seasoning but that's it. The feta made it creamy and rich, and oh so yummy! :) Thanks alijen! Made for National Tomato Month Diabetic Forum April 2012
