      Lovely recipe. I did prepare it a little differently - I made the sauce separate, steamed the beans and the poured the sauce over the beans when I served them Wonderful do again for sure recipe

      Very good, we enjoyed them and i will make them again. I was called away to the phone while they cooked , consequently I over cooked them a bit, but they were still good, I look forward to trying them again and will be sure to keep them crisp. Thanks for posting.

      I just made this tonight with a few adjustments.. well I had to double the whole recipe, I have a big family. But I just used garlic powder, and I used frozen french style green beans.. thawed em in the mic then tossed them in the fry pan with the tomato and onion. Didn't use any salt pepper or butter. Just garlic powder and seasoned salt.... but aaaaamazing =] I LOVED it. =]
