1 medium head
garlic - peeled and sliced
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
green beans, drained
salt and pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese
Nice change from regular steamed green beans. I cut back on the olive oil to one tsp as 3 tablespoons + butter seemed excessive. Threw in crumbled bacon and sauteed onion at the last minute. Be sure to use a good parmesan as it will make all the difference in the taste of this dish! Enjoy!
Gosh...I really hate to put a lower star review on this recipe, but my family and I really did not like this recipe...and we're all garlic lovers, too. I've tried this 3 times now just to make sure I was doing it right, but every time, it has bombed. I think it was really a matter of preferences when it comes to vegetables, too. My family generally likes their vegetables steamed, and with little seasoning. The green bean flavor with the garlic and parmesan just didn't work. My grandmother even said, "What's wrong with these beans? They taste funny." I really tried to make this one work, especially given all the great reviews. Try it for yourself, though. I think this will probably appeal more to those who normally don't like beans, unlike my family...who grows about 5 different varieties in the backyard. :D
Easy to make and delicious to eat. I used fresh green beans that I steamed before adding to the sauteed garlic.
These vegetables were delicious!! I had been having a craving for green beans and this fit the bill perfectly. I did use fresh green beans and I boiled them in salted water for 4 minutes first so they were crisp-tender then shocked them in cold water before sauteeing them. I used less butter than suggested but they were still yummy!! Topped with asiago cheese! A definite make again!
This was really GOOD! I have had an abundance of beans this year from my garden and am tired of the GreenBean Casserole and just plain... this was really good. I used fresh beans, 2 CLOVES (not heads) of garlic and it was really terrific. I will make these again and SOON....
Nice change of pace. Thanks
These were super yummy! I loved it!!! I reduced the olive oil as others suggested to 1 tablespoon and also only used 3 pieces of garlic instead of an entire head. I also used fresh green beans and steamed them for 4 minutes and then added them to the pan to saute.
Very good. I steamed fresh green beans for 2-3 minutes then sauteed them as recipe stated. A keeper.
Mmmm....not one left and got raves from picky eaters. I used extra virgin olive oil (is there any other kind to cook with??) and reduced to 2 tbsp. I also used frozen beans but thawed them before placing them in the skillet with the oil.
