This is a really old recipe that I've had forever. They're simple but good. You can substitute 1 pound of asparagus for the beans if you'd like.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • ground nutmeg

  • salt, to taste

  • ground black pepper, to taste

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil; drop in the green beans and return to a boil. Cook uncovered until the beans are bright green and barely tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat; whisk the cream, 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, and nutmeg into the melted butter. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Gently stir the beans into the mixture to coat; season with salt and pepper. Return to a simmer, transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese to serve.
