    I made this tonight and put it over rice with some shaved Parmesan on top. We are trying to go meatless several times a week and this was fantastic. =)

    I was not a fan of green beans until I made this recipe. I came across this recipe while searching for a way to get my husband to eat more vegetables. Green beans are one of the few veggies he eats. We are all fans of this recipe. It is so easy to make and leftovers are easy to warm up.
    It is one of my fast and easy go to recipes. Love it.

    Yum. This is a lot like a traditional Greek recipe that my Greek friend gave me.

    5 pounds green beans, cut into bite size if you like
    parsley, chopped
    onions to taste
    mint - dried or fresh
    2 pounds canned plum tomatoes with basil

    In large, oven-proof pot, cook onions in olive oil. Add parsley and cook. Add mint and tomatoes. Squash tomatoes. Add beans. Stir. Put in 325 degree oven. Cook 5-6 hours. Serve with Italian bread.
