Sure, you could buy canned green beans ready to heat and eat, but there's nothing more delicious than fresh. They're so versatile - they work well with whatever flavors you team them with, so try tossing up our terrific Green Beans Italiano side today.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded real Parmesan cheese

What to Do

  1. Bring a soup pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans; blanch for 5 to 6 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the garlic; sauté until golden.

  3. Add the green beans and black pepper; sauté for 3 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

This can go with just any kind of meat. I chose to serve it with Parmesan Chicken Bake. The next time I might leave the cheese off. I sampled it while cooking and thought it was really good without the parmesan.

What an easy and delicious way to dress up plain green beans. I love green beans and could eat them almost every day. I think that my family will be happy to see that I found a new way to make them too. We often use balsamic vinegar, and everyone cleans their veggies up.
