frozen whole green beans (I use Hanover) or fresh green beans
(if fresh, ends snapped off)
Italian bread crumbs with Parmesan
(see Cooking with Mamma C's recipe for Homemade Italian Bread Crumbs)
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
If using frozen green beans, microwave them in a heat-safe bowl for two minutes less than the package directions state. (If using fresh green beans, rinse them and boil in a small amount of water for 10 minutes, or until almost cooked to your liking.) Drain any water used in cooking.
Melt butter in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the pre-cooked green beans and the bread crumb mixture to the pan and toss with a spoon to coat evenly. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes, or until green beans and bread crumbs are cooked to your liking. Add salt and pepper to taste before serving.
