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.

    You lose many vitamins by putting beans in boiling water. Better to steam them or microwave them. Save those vitamins whenever can!! Recipe sounds yummy.
