I had about a pound of beautiful fresh green beans from the farm, and adjusted the rest of the ingredients accordingly. I did not peel the tomatoes, but I did remove the pulp and the seeds. Since the beans need to cook for so long, they do lose a lot of their color. I would probably steam them first next time, to reduce the cooking time in the pan. I ended up adding a lot of additional water while waiting for the beans to cook. All-in-all, this was a very tasty dish. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT 9.

Cut the recipe in half, used fresh tomatoes and green beans. What a nice fresh green bean dish, no leftovers with this dish.

Very nice, I cut this recipe as there is just the two of us. I used frozen beans and fresh tomato, and it turned out just fine, so much better than plain old beans. I served it with Lindsey's Luscious Lemony Lamb for Your Crock Pot#290788 and they were perfect together. I will be making this again, it's a great side dish. thank you for posting Made for ZWT#6 2010.
