Ok, so I skipped the sugar. I didn't really measure anything, either, so my proportions could have been a little off. No fresh basil, so I used dried. Think I used quite a bit more seasoning than was called for, actually. But, these were THE BEST GREEN BEANS EVER. I made them for Easter dinner, along with a few other new recipes, and I assumed the from-scratch potatoes au gratin would be the winner, but I was wrong. These green beans were the hit of the meal with EVERYONE. My brother-in-law, who would willingly go his whole life without eating another vegetable, took a small spoonful of these to be polite. A few minutes into dinner, he tasted the beans and started raving. "If all vegetables tasted like this, I would eat them every night," and, "If you're ever coming over and want to know if you need to bring anything, I'll tell you to bring green beans." Really, make these. They're fabulous.
