  • 1 bag (16 oz) frozen green beans
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

  2. Add onion, and continue to cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat until soft.
  3. Add green beans and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes, until the beans are heated through.
  4. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and pepper, and serve.
