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.

Dee-lish! I used fresh green beans and a can of drained diced tomatoes instead of the fresh. This one's going into my favorites cookbook. Made for Aussie/NZ RS#32.

I used one onion. I didn't add the full quantity of olive oil. I had to add maybe near 1 cup of water while cooking. The flavour are great. Thanks Jubes. Made for the Babes of ZWT4

MADE FOR ZWT4. I made the recipe exactly as it was written (cutting up the beans, though). But I added about a teaspoon of sugar (try it and taste the difference!) The tomato and beans benefit from the small amount of added sugar. I did not add parsley to the cooking beans and veggies, as in my experience the parsley cooks away to nothing. The end result was a pleasing side dish to a chicken recipe which is also in ZWT4. I used nutmeg and coarse black pepper to serve. Very nice dish!!! Thank you!

I made this as a side tonight for supper. I did things a little different as I used 2 pans one for the frozen green beans and one for the tomato and all other ingredients. When all was done I pour tomatoes over the top of the green beans. Great Flavor. Thank You!! Made for ZWT4 for team CHIC CHEFS.
