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.

A Keeper !! Used a can of green beans- drained, a can of diced tomatoes - undrained, kalamata olives and topped with feta. This was a tasty side to "Herbed Lemon Chicken in a Crock Pot / Slow Cooker", and will be served again. Thanks for posting, Yooper.

Delish veggies! What a beautiful dish, I wish I had a picture to attach. Definately use kalamata olives and even little lemon juice could be added if desired. Highly recommended!

OK, we're hooked! I'm using to cooking these the longer traditional way and wasn't too sure about this but was in a hurry and happened to have frozen green beans. This has definitely become one of this busy mom's favorite new recipes! Everyone loved it, from the youngest kids to dh (and they all eat a lot of Greek Green Beans). The feta is, of course, the perfect touch. We served it with Greek Chicken Pita Pockets #85871, Mean Chef's Tzatziki #51983, hummus, labneh, tabbouleh, rice, and pita. It's already a regular on our new menu rotations...thanks SO much for posting this!

I made this for my Gourmet Group and they loved them. I did cut the tomatoes in half and used fresh blanched green beans.

Excellent! Great flavor and presentation. I made the recipe as directed using Kamalata olives. This is a handy recipe for frozen green beans, especially when you can't find decent fresh ones. The flavor combination is so wonderful, I could of skipped the rest of dinner in favor of a big bowl of beans! Way yo go Yooper!!!
