Have made this several times and really enjoy it. Good with fresh or canned green beans. I skip the initial heating of oil and tomato paste step - I found it unnecessary - I simply whisk the oil and tomato paste together in a small bowl and add to the beans and stir - it blends better that way. My husband is managing his diabetes with diet herbs and exercise - green beans are one of the nonstarchy vegetables he can eat consequently this was a welcome addition to our diabetic recipe collection.

We found this recipe acceptable but next time I will use butter or crisp bacon in place of the oil which did not provide the necessary flavor punch. Read More

This sounded odd when I was preparing it howver it was very flavorful and the only fat is in the vegetable oil. Read More

This recipe has potential but I had problems with the tomatoe paste/oil bit. Couldn't get them to mix so it just sat on top of the veggies. Hmmm? Read More

This was less like a stew and more like green beans with some heated tomatoe paste. I added some sauce and noodles and let it sit for a while but it still tasted rather bland. Maybe some fresh basil would do the trick but I wouldn;t make it again Read More

This is delicious! I used a whole 6 oz. can of tomato paste about 1/4 c. olive oil and about a lb. of fresh green beans with red and orange baby bell peppers and the onion. It took about 30 minutes of prep and another 45 minutes cooking but it was worth it! The paste gives it a rich sweetness without adding my sugar! Read More

This was just okay. It was more of a side dish and a little bland for my family. The good thing about it is that it took little to prep. Read More
