"This is a really old recipe that I've had forever. They're simple but good. You can substitute 1 pound of asparagus for the beans if you'd like."

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil; drop in the green beans and return to a boil. Cook uncovered until the beans are bright green and barely tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; whisk the cream, 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, and nutmeg into the melted butter. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Gently stir the beans into the mixture to coat; season with salt and pepper. Return to a simmer, transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese to serve.

Excellent! The sauce is amazing and would be great on lots of other veggies and maybe even meat. The nutmeg is a must! DON'T LEAVE IT OUT.

Very Good. I followed the recipe exactly. My boyfriend wishes I had made more. Will make again!

i used whole milk in place of cream and it still tasted delicious

Served this dish for Mother's Day family dinner with Slow Cooker Thanksgiving Turkey from this website. As good as the turkey and gravy were, the green beans stole the show. Used frozen harico...

Fast, easy, and the family gobbled them all up. I used canned green beans. Mild flavor, very creamy. Thanks.
