    1. In a large frying pan over medium heat, melt butter with olive oil; add garlic, and cook until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
    2. Stir in green beans, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until beans are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

    Parmesan cheese

    Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

    This was really GOOD! I have had an abundance of beans this year from my garden and am tired of 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  -  15 Sep 2008


    Something else. Very good. I steamed fresh green beans for 2-3 minutes then sauteed them as recipe stated.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Easy to make and delicious to eat. I used fresh green beans that I steamed before adding to the sauteed garlic.  -  15 Sep 2008
