AMAZING Garlic Green Beans

These are anything-BUT low-calorie, but they're sooo delicious! I figured, what better way to spend my calories than tasty vegetables?  Next time I make them, I'm going to try cutting the butter and oil in half, but somehow I don't think it'll be the same. :)  Even my husband, who is a complete "meat & potatoes" guy told me to make these way more often.

Garlic Green Beans

1 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 head garlic
2 cans green beans, drained
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

In a skillet over medium heat, add oil and butter. Peel each clove of garlic (it takes some work, but trust me, it's worth it!) then slice into very thin slices. Add the garlic to the oil and saute until the garlic is BARELY brown (you don't want to burn it, so keep the heat at medium/medium low). Add the green beans and stir to coat the beans with the oil/butter. Cook until the beans are heated through, just a couple minutes.  Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese over each serving.
