  • 12 ounces green beans in a microwaveable steamer bag
  • cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs Italian-seasoned
  • cup Romano cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Follow the directions on the bag you are using to steam the green beans in the microwave. Usually you prick the bag with a fork and microwave them for 4 minutes. Remove the green beans from the bag and set them aside.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter with the garlic for a minute.
  • Add the steamed string beans and stir to coat them.
  • Add the breadcrumbs and grated cheese. Stir the green beans gently to coat them.
  • Serve immediately.


CHEESE:  Use Parmesan cheese instead of Romano, or whatever grated cheese you like!
