Greek Green Beans in Tomato Sauce - Fassolakia Freska me Domata

    1 hour

    This is a wonderful dish made with fine green beans in a rich, tomatoey sauce. Serve it with whatever you wish, but make sure you have some bread to mop up the juices. This sauce also works well with other vegetables, including okra.

    So easy to make, extremely tasty and is even more delicious the following day.  -  03 Sep 2014


    Soooo Yum!!! And healthy the way I made em', I cut waaaaay back on the oil, its not necessary! Used cooking spray to saute onions) Added some minced garlic, used chicken broth instead of water, & they came out GREAT!  -  27 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    it was really easy to make but i usually like my green beans on the crunchy side so simmering for 45 minutes was way too long for my taste. however, the sauce was really nice and i added some crushed red pepper flakes to give it a kick. not sure if the sauce would have been as mellow and sweet if i didn't simmer for 45 minutes. maybe next time i will simmer the sauce first and add the green beans in the last 15 minutes or so. the sauce never thickened.  -  12 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
