DIRECTIONS

  • Place pine nuts in a dry sauté pan over low heat and cook 5 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until lightly browned. Set aside.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add green beans and blanch 2 to 3 minutes, until tender but still crisp.
  • Drain beans in a colander and immediately put them in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and preserve their bright green color.
  • To make gremolata, toss lemon zest, parsley, parmesan, and pine nuts together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Drain beans and pat dry.
  • When ready to serve, heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
  • Add beans to skillet and sauté, turning frequently, 2 minutes, until coated with olive oil and heated through.
  • Remove beans from hot pan and transfer to a serving platter or bowl (adding the gremolata mixture directly to the hot pan will melt the parmesan and make it gooey, even if the pan is off the heat).
  • Add the gremolata to the beans, and toss well.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
