Lemon Garlic Green Beans

These are the best green beans.  The Best.  They are so good they make you excited about green beans.  Plus, they only take a few minutes to put together.  If you serve them with a very simple sauteed fish, like I did here, the whole meal takes about 10 minutes.  You could easily use this sauce with other vegetables, it would be delicious with asparagus. These measurements are approximate, I usually just throw all the ingredients in a bowl, so adjust to taste.

Lemon Garlic Green Beans

4 cups green beans
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 garlic clove, grated or finely minced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2-4 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Boil or steam beans until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
Immediately immerse beans in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and maintain their bright green color.
In a large bowl, mix together lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Add in green beans and top with parmesan cheese.
Toss to coat and serve any temperature.
