Green beans and tomatoes with basil

8 Oct

green beans tomato basilThis was a tasty way to prepare my big bag of Sam’s Club frozen green beans.  It was very simple and the ingredients basic.  I used quartered campari tomatoes and dried basil because I had them on hand.  I steamed the green beans in the microwave long enough to thaw them and let them simmer until we were ready to eat.  It was a nice accompaniment to our meal of pasta and garlic bread.  Charity and Uncle Kolby gave them two thumbs up.


  • 1 1/2 pounds frozen green beans, thawed and drained
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil or dried equivalent
  • 2 cups cherry tomato halves
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in sugar, garlic salt, pepper and basil. Add tomatoes, and cook stirring gently just until soft.  Add green beans to the mixture and simmer until heated through.
