Total Time: 16 minutes
Servings: 6


  • 1  pound  French green beans, trimmed
  • teaspoons  minced garlic (2 cloves)
  • tablespoon  grated lemon zest  (2 lemons)
  • tablespoons  minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • tablespoons  freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • tablespoons  toasted pine nuts
  • 2 1/2  tablespoons  good olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the green beans and blanch them for 3 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Drain the beans in a colander and immediately put them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking and preserve their bright green color.
  • For the gremolata, toss the garlic, lemon zest, parsley, parmesan, and pine nuts in a small bowl and set aside.
  • When ready to serve, heat the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Drain the beans and pat them dry. Add the beans to the pan and saute, turning frequently, for 2 minutes, until coated with olive oil and heated through.
  • Off the heat, add the gremolata and toss well.
  • Sprinkle with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and serve hot.
