ITALIAN GREEN BEANS



ITALIAN GREEN BEANS

The easiest and tastiest green beans you may ever make!.  Be sure to use the skinny, long French green beans.  They are such a treat and easy to work with.  No need to remove strings, but simply cut the ends off and chop to size.  Costco (Price Smart here) sells them by the bagful.

2 tbsp bacon fat (30 mL)
24 oz French green beans (0.68 kg)
11/tsp crushed garlic (7 mL)
Seasoning salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (30 mL)
  (the kind in a can)
2/cup grated Mozzarella cheese (150 mL) 

Cut ends of green beans off and cut to size.  Rinse in a colander.

In pot in boiling water, cook green beans until completely tender; about 10 minutes.

In nonstick frying pan, in 1 tbsp (15 mL) hot, melted bacon fat, cook garlic until turning golden.  Add remaining bacon fat and melt.  Add green beans and toss to coat. Sprinkle with seasoning salt and black pepper.  Place in a shallow casserole dish.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and then Mozzarella cheese.  Microwave briefly or place in moderate oven to melt the Mozzarella cheese.  Serve.
