Green Beans and Tomatoes

In so many green bean casseroles, the beans are cooked well past the point of mushy. SAVEUR editor-in-chief James Oseland lets his beans retain some snap in this recipe: the richness here comes from luscious, cooked-down tomatoes. This recipe was the cover photo for our November 2011 issue, where it ran with the story Superb Sides.
