My Famous Green Beans

It is November which means Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I am going start posting a ton of recipes and seasonal holiday ideas to make this year your best Thanksgiving celebration yet!

This is a delicious and easy green bean recipe. I started making this dish a few years ago and they instantly became a family favorite. The first time I made them they were deemed the best green beans ever. When Nathan tried them he had to seriously resist himself from eating the entire pan. Because of their ease and unbelievable taste, there’s no excuse not to make them a part of your Thanksgiving spread and your families future meals all year round.

You will need:

Large bag of fresh green beans

1, 15 oz can of diced tomatoes, (I used tomatoes with garlic and basil but I usually use whatever can of tomatoes I have on hand)
