You can cook the beans in advance until crisp-tender, then refrigerate. Just before serving, give them a quick stir-fry with garlic and lemon juice. This recipes is from cooking light but I added some parm cheese for some extra flavor.

This was so good and so easy to make! My kids love it even the picky eater that never eats green beans!
