Loved the taste of this recipe! I made two modifications 1) left out the tomatoes 2) did not drain the beans since the undrained tomatoes were omitted. Will definitely make again.

My husband asks for this quite often. It's especially good with fresh green beans out of the garden.

IF I make this again, I will omit the can of tomatoes. It made the result mushy and didn't look at all like the photo.
