Easy Garlic Green Beans with Bread Crumbs

I’ll be honest.  While I’m a big vegetable fan, I rarely even think about green beans.  But when I popped by the farmers market this weekend and green beans were freshly picked, I knew this was the perfect week to bring them into our repertoire.  But, rather than just cooking them plain, I decided that a little extra flavor would be preferred.  After seeing what we had available in our home, the garlic green beans with bread crumbs was born.

5) Once green beans are done cooking, drain completely and put in medium bowl.  Pour dry seasonings into bowl slowly to coat green beans evenly.  Top with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese if desired.
