Italian Style Green Beans with Parmesan Crisps


  • 2 lbs Fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 Small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 box of Pomidiced tomatoes (or 1.5 cans of other diced tomatoes)
  • ½ cup Water
  • 2 Tbsp Thinly sliced fresh basil
  • ½ bag Fresh Gourmet Parmesan cheese crisps
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Melt the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, sauté for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, salt & pepper and water. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and add green beans. Stir to combine well and cover. Cook until green beans are tender (approximately 20-25 minutes)adding more water as necessary.
  4. Once beans are tender, uncover and increase heat to evaporate some of the water (you want a thick sauce to coat the beans).
  5. Turn off the heat and add basil. Check for seasoning.
  6. Transfer to a serving bowl and scatter Parmesan cheese crisps over the top. Serve immediately
