This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension.
- 4 slices bacon, diced
- 2 lb. green beans ends removed
- ¼ c. shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 medium-size garlic cloves, minced
- ⅛ tsp. salt
- ⅛ tsp. black pepper
Cook and then chop the bacon. Cook the beans by placing them into a large pot of boiling, salted water. Fill another pot or bowl with ice water. Cook the beans until they can be pierced with a fork (usually 3 to 5 minutes). Remove the beans and place them in ice water. Drain well and place in oven-safe pan. Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine the bacon, garlic and parmesan cheese in a bowl, then mix with beans. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
