Loved this recipe. Made eating green beans way more interesting.
Couldn’t detect the addition of wine, even tho’ I used (substantially) more than the recipe called for. Therefore, if you’re a white wine drinker (and I am not) I would suggest you drink it instead and enjoy. Still, this was quite nice, both in flavor and in eye appeal. To keep feta-detesting Hubs happy I substituted ricotta salata (I’ve psyched him into thinking there’s a HUGE difference).
This was easy to make while juggling a couple of other dishes. I used a chardonnay and could taste it fine. It did make a difference. Overall, it was quite good and I will make it again.
I used vegetable broth instead of white wine because that is what I had on hand. It was yummy, and the kids ate them, too!
Thrilled to find this recipe...it is great AND bonus factors...it's very attractive to serve AND it's very quick & easy! What do you want from a recipe?? The green beans, red pepper & feta really were wonderful combo!
I did use the wine and could certainly tell I was cooking with wine... but could I really taste it when eating...not really.
Like one other mentioned you can't detect any addition of wine. However it has a good taste. My husband loved it. And I don't really like green beans but I liked them this way. So it passed my taste test.
