Green beans are such a classic at a holiday meal, but don’t get stuck in a rut with the same old way to fix them! This is a very quick and easy way to put an elegant green bean dish on the table. I like to use a wedge of Parmesan cheese and my cheese knife to shave pretty cheesy ribbons over the top. It takes green beans to the next level!
