Drain beans; immediately submerge in bowl of lightly salted ice water to stop cooking and set color. When thoroughly chilled, drain well. Cover and chill up to 24 hours. In a wide skillet heat butter over medium-high heat until hot and foaming. Add beans. Cook, tossing often, until heated through.

Sprinkle with additional parsley. Serve immediately. Makes 6 to 8 servings. To serve right away: Omit chill green beans.
