Green Beans Aglio e Olio

Katelyn Theofanis
These green beans are subtly spicy and full of garlic flavor. It's all the goodness you enjoy in the pasta dish, but in the vegetable form!

  • 1 lb frozen French green beans
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic sliced very thin
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • pinch salt to taste
  • ¼ cup fresh Italian parsley chopped fine
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice optional


  • Heat a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Place a tablespoon of oil into the pan. Add the green beans, carefully (remember they are frozen). Cook until tender and cooked through. *Make sure not to overcook the beans.
  • Remove the green beans and transfer them to a medium-sized bowl. Cover with foil to keep them warm. 
  • Place the remaining oil into the skillet. Add the garlic and cook until golden brown. Keep a close eye so that the garlic does not burn. Add the red pepper flakes and cook for 30 seconds more. 
  • Pour the garlic olive oil over the green beans and toss to coat. Add parsley, lemon juice, if using, and ¼ of the Parmesan cheese. Place onto the desired serving dish and garnish with the remaining Parmesan. Serve immediately.
