Recipe by MommaEllen

Sometimes the simple flavors are the best! An easy, inexpensive side dish that makes me think of summer even in the winter. You can play around with the ingredients to make it your own.

This was a great side dish for us last nite as we're low carbing right now. I used canned french green beans and 1 small tomato. Thank you for this one!
