    yes, love the herbs with the string beans. i have an even simpler, similar variety. put some butter in a saucepan, sautée scallions and some garlic, as well as chopped tomatoes on top, then string beans.add some salt and pepper. reduce heat, cover, simmer until beans are tender. same ingredients as yours, just cooked differently. does taste good. you may want to chop some smoked ham and sautée with the scallions and garlic. makes a full meal for me.
