Expert Tips

From Betty's Soul Food Collection... Give those green beans a little razzle-dazzle with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, some garlic and only 15 minutes of prep time!

Garlic can burn quickly, and give a harsh, disagreeable flavor. To prevent garlic from burning, cook it briefly over medium-low heat.

A 1-pound bag of frozen cut green beans can be used in place of the whole green beans.

Fresh Parmesan cheese can be substituted for the grated Parmesan. Sprinkle additional cheese on the dish as a garnish.

Directions

  • 1 Cook green beans as directed on bag to desired doneness--except do not season to taste; drain.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until garlic is tender.
  • 3 Pour garlic butter over cooked green beans; stir to coat. Sprinkle with cheese; toss gently.
