 These garlic Parmesan green beans are just delicious.  This is one of my all time favorite side dishes, and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I thought it was time to pull it out and share it with you – after all, they are naturally green.  In addition to being yummy, these green beans are quick and easy.  

The recipe begins with cooking the green beans in a little water.  This steams them just a bit, so that you need less oil to cook them in.  Less oil means less fat, and when you are watching your calories, that is a good thing.
