    Lennie's Note:

    This simple dish has a lot going for it: fresh green beans, toasted nuts, and the salty goodness of fresh parmesan slivers. It's very easy, yet looks stunning with the parmesan shards -- and it will definitely impress your guests.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Top and tail the beans, but leave them whole.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of water to boil and, when boiling, drop beans in; cook approximately eight minutes or until beans are tender-crisp (if you like your beans to be softer, by all means cook them longer).
    3. 3
      Drain well and set aside.
    4. 4
      In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
    5. 5
      Add walnuts to pan and, stirring frequently to prevent burning, cook walnuts for 2 or 3 minutes, or until they start to turn golden and are fragrant.
    6. 6
      Add drained beans to skillet and toss gently, making sure beans get coated with butter.
    7. 7
      Heat through for one minute, stirring gently once or twice, then turn out onto a shallow serving platter.
    8. 8
      Shave or sliver parmesan so it is in shards (most box graters have a slicing side, and this works well), and place all parmesan slivers on top of beans and walnuts; serve immediately.
    9. 9
      Note: if you absolutely cannot find a cheese counter where you can buy a piece of parmesan cheese, use 1/4 cup grated, but please make sure it is freshly grated; there is a huge flavour difference between fresh and the grated stuff you can buy off the shelf.

      Love the colour, love the 'nuttiness' and crunch. The shaved Parmesan is a definite for this vegetable dish. Thanks for another winner Lennie.

      Very easy to make. As Lennie said you need a GOOD hard brick parmesan cheese. I guess I used up all my good parmesan and had to go with Kraft Italian Parmesan Wedge.
