  • 2 14.5 oz cans green beans
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4-5 large cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour in the olive oil, stirring the two together.
  • Once hot, add the garlic to the skillet. Stirring frequently, let the garlic saute and brown lightly. This will only take a minute.
  • Add the drained beans to the skillet. Season them with salt & pepper. Toss the beans a couple times while they cook.
  • Cook the beans until tender & infused with flavor, tossing regularly- roughly 6-8 minutes.
  • Remove the beans from heat.
  • Serve the still hot beans on waiting plates, topped with Parmesan cheese.
