  1. Place the green beans in a saucepan with a lid and pour enough water over the beans to cover; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover; simmer until the beans are tender but still crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain. Spread the beans onto paper towels to dry.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; stir the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese into the melted butter. Reduce heat to low; add the beans and cook and stir until the beans are heated through and the crumbs are beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the parsley over the mixture to serve.

This was a great recipe! I skipped the parsley as well and added garlic. Simple and great. Thanks!

This recipe is great. Only thing i did different was switch the amount of cheese and bread crumbs. I like more seasoning than cheese. My husband and kids even liked it. They hate veggies!
