Cook's Notes

To make sure the beans you buy are fresh, snap them in half; they should snap easily under light pressure and form beads of moisture around the breaks.

    These green beans were simply delicious!!!! My store was out of fresh basil so I had to substitute dried basil I already had in my spice cabinet for it. But other than that followed the recipe exactly and they were wonderful!!! Thanks, I have a new way to cook green beans!!!

    I halved this recipe and it was quite delicious. Next time I make it I may go a little easier on the garlic as it competed too much with the tomato and basil flavors. This was very easy to make and was more elegant than plain green beans.
