      Easy and tasty recipe for green beans... one of the few veggies everyone in my family eats. I only used a 14.5 oz can of tomatoes (Italian stewed tomatoes because that's all I had). I think a 28 oz can would have been too much tomato for us. Left out the olives too. So it was probably a bit more of an Italian flavor than Greek. I think I'll use regular diced tomatoes next time. Thanks... it will be a "regular" recipe!

      LOVED IT! The combination of flavors in this dish is superb. The only problem was that it took much longer to cook the "frozen" taste out so the beans tasted like they were from scratch. Thanks Yooper, for a keeper!

      This was a nice change from plain green beans. I omitted the olives and halved the recipe. I ushe store only had cut green beans instead of french cut, so it took much longer than 8 minutes to cook the green beans. The feta was a nice addition. I served these as a side with chicken souvlaki and tzaziki sauce from Cooking Light, and store bought pita and hummus. A very nice Greek-inspired dinner. Thanks for posting.
