Holiday Cheer – Green Beans with Parmesan

by Anna on December 28, 2014

Here’s a fairly easy side dish.  I really like fresh green beans, but I do get tired of steaming them all the time, so I’ve been on the hunt for a variety of dishes.  I made this one the other day and it was great.  I’ve tweaked it from the original, because I really like fresh mushrooms, too.

Green Beans with Parmesan


¾-1 pound fresh green beans
¼ cup olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
4 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, diced
1 tsp dried basil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/3 grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven 350°. Cook green beans in salted water until tender-crisp. Meanwhile, heat oil and sauté onions, mushrooms and garlic until onions are translucent and mushrooms are tender. Add green beans and basil. Salt and pepper to taste.
Pour into a 1-quart baking dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned.
