"These string beans are terrific as a side dish to any Italian main course. They are a staple in my kitchen."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 pounds
fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons
chopped fresh parsley
Really good! As suggested, I also skipped the parsley and added two big cloves of minced garlic which I sauteed in the butter before adding the other ingredients. I will be making this side dish often!
I followed the directions exactly and did not care for this recipe. The bread crumbs fell off and got gummy. It wasn't pretty.
Had some bakery croutons in the freezer that got completely squished - perfect for this recipe. Not a lot to criticize or analyze on this one - prepared this exactly as written and would do so again. Loved it - took the lowly green being from boring and merely edible to interesting, elegant and delicious.
This recipe was a good way to change up green beans. My sister had seconds and she never eats green beans! I added minced garlic to the beans as they were boiling and skipped the parsley. Thanks for the recipe.
I was looking for a real Italian recipe with real ingredients. I love this recipe. I did make some changes- I used a 1 lb bag of frozen green beans, cooked according to directions, then (seperate pan) melted the butter (only using 2 Tbsp) and added minced garlic, once brown, I added the green beans and mixed together. Then, I added the parmesan cheese. I omited the parsley (taste) and bread crumbs (making it low carb!). My daughter ate 3 portions! When I'm not low carbing, I plan on making this recipe exactly as is.
I skipped the parsley also and added garlic pepper & seasoned salt. I was in a hurry to make the green beans and didn't measure out the bread crumbs or cheese -- and it still tasted yummy! Great, simple recipe for using fresh beans.
omg amazing i will never make green beans another way my family and i loved them i also skipped the parsley and added some garlic thanks so much xx
This was a great recipe! I skipped the parsley as well and added garlic. Simple and great. Thanks!
