Green beans are one of the few vegetables almost everyone will eat, and we are always on the lookout for more recipes in which they star. Green Beans Parmesan is a classic side dish in which the beans are topped with a quick tomato sauce, crunchy bread crumbs, and nutty Parmesan cheese. For success, we cooked the recipes in steps. First we toasted the bread crumbs, then we cooked the tomato topping, and then we sautéed the green beans. Braising the beans in broth flavored with the tomato mixture—after they are sautéed—softens them and deepens the flavor of our Green Bean Parmesan recipe.

Serves 6 to 8

Water can be used in place of the chicken broth, but the flavor won’t be as good. To make fresh bread crumbs, process 2 slices of hearty white sandwich bread in a food processor.
