2. Mix together the parsley, lemon zest and almonds in a small bowl. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large, heavy nonstick skillet, and add the garlic. As soon as it begins to sizzle and smell good (30 seconds to a minute), stir in the beans. Toss for about a minute until the beans are coated with oil and cooked garlic, then stir in the parsley mixture. Stir for a minute, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the beans to a platter or serving dish, scrape the almond mixture remaining in the pan over the top and serve.
