Parmesan Garlic Green Beans

Pin It
These were a quick and easy side dish that I made one night on a whim. I always serve a vegetable with dinner, whether it be a salad, a can of corn or something homemade. I always grew up having at least one "green thing" on the table, and I continue to do that to this day.

Chris usually just likes the main entree part of the meal and sticks to that, but I think it's important that we both have our fair share of vegetables (such a mom thing to say, isn't it?). Including flavors that we like makes these healthy side dishes a little more tolerable, so adding Parmesan cheese and garlic to plain ol' green beans really took them up a notch. And it was easy, too. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 (12 oz.) bag fresh green beans
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Cook green beans according to directions on the bag.

Heat olive oil and butter in a medium saucepan. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the cooked green beans and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove saucepan from heat. Add the Parmesan cheese and mix well. Sprinkle with additional cheese and serve immediately.
