Parmesan Green Beans
Parmesan seems to make everything taste better. Authentic Parmigiano-Reggiano, Romano, or Asiago are other options. See what you have in your fridge's deli drawer. For the best flavor, buy a chunk of cheese and grate it yourself just before using.
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen French-cut green beans
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add green beans, and cook until tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
Add butter, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine. Serve sprinkled with remaining Parmesan.
