I used Kentucky Wonder beans and fresh tomatoes from the garden 3 cups of chopped cherry tomatoes! This was delicious. It does take a long time to cook compared with other vegetables (needs all the time the recipe says). I also added 1 teaspoon of salt because I thought it was really bland without it. Read More

Yum. I like to consider myself something of a green bean expert because they are my favorite and this recipe is excellent. I used frozen beans because I didn't have fresh. You can vary the cooking time depending on how well done you like your beans. Perfectly tomatoey! Thanks! Read More

This was full of tomato flavor and I normally wouldn't mind that except I wanted to taste green beans. If I make this again I will add more green beans I think and a bit more garlic since I could hardly taste it. Read More

Yum! I didn't have any pine nuts but I can only imagine that they would have added to this great recipe. I used frozen green beans because i din't have fresh. Very good. My toddler ate the tomatoes and asked for more. Read More
