    I was looking for a green bean recipe and this picture caught my eye! The tomatoes were an amazing combination with the beans! I also squeezed some lemon juice over beans before serving! My family loved them!

    I love this recipe! I have made it three separate times and it is so delicious every time. I have made this recipe to serve with a beef tenderloin and with salmon. It is a great vegetable dish to serve with most anything.I like that this recipe is simple and very easy to make. I have easily adjusted the ingredients in this recipe to serve just the two of us and I have made this recipe to serve during a large holiday dinner. I have also made some minor alterations to the recipe based on what I had on hand at the time including substituting a splash of lemon juice for the lemon peel and using fancy shredded parmesan cheese for the grated parmesan cheese. I have also added both a dash of sea salt and a dash of seasoned pepper to the recipe. I will be keeping this recipe handy to make again and again.

    Yummy! I used garlic salt instead of celery salt.~ Theresa
