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.

Loved this recipe. Made eating green beans way more interesting.

I really, really liked this one and will be making it again. Even the younger ones (ages 4 and 8) loved it and ate every bit. I'm not sure if next time I will melt the feta with it as written or just sprinkle it on top and serve like that. It sure does look prettier when just sprinkled. Nice flavor and texture.

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!

This is a fantastic recipe! My 3 year old cannot get enough of these beans. I omit the bell pepper because he wouldn't eat it if it was in there. Sometimes when I don't have white wine or chicken stock, I just use water for the liquid and it still turns out great.

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.
