Garlic Parmesan Green Beans

The turkey definitely takes the main stage on the Thanksgiving table.

But the sides are just important! It is important to have balance and have some light sides to balance out the more heavy side dishes.

I love green beans versus a green bean casserole, as casseroles can be quite heavy.

I blanch the green beans in boiling water for a minute, then shock in ice water, pat them dry and then saute in olive oil with the garlic, salt and pepper. The blanching process helps ensure a crunchy, bright green bean!
