Green Beans Alfredo

An Atkins low-carb side inspired by a pasta favorite.



  1. Boil green beans in a quart of water until they start to get tender.
  2. Drain green beans and place them in a medium baking dish. Set aside. Heat oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  3. In a saucepan, heat olive oil on medium heat.
  4. Throw in minced garlic and stir until slightly browned, add heavy cream and cream cheese.
  5. Break up cream cheese with spatula. Keep stirring until cream cheese is mostly melted. Remove from heat, stir in the parmesan cheese.
  6. Pour cheese mixture over green beans and stir to coat.
  7. Place in 350 °F oven for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.
  8. Let cool about 10 minutes before serving. Salt and pepper to taste.

just on a side note though, i wonder what size serving the nutrition facts are based on since 5.54 carbs seems high. none of the ingredients aside from the green beans have carbs in them??
