I think the first time I made these, was the first time Ron ever went back for seconds on vegetables. I know, I was shocked too! In fact, he said these were actually his favorite part of the meal. He calls them the potato chips of vegetables 🙂 It’s amazing what roasting a vegetable can do! These roasted green beans are such a simple side dish, but they add something special to any meal you serve them with.
Roasted Parmesan Green Beans
1 lb Green Beans, trimmed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt, plus more to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (or more or less depending on how cheesy you want them!)
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and on the baking sheet toss together the green beans and olive oil. Add the 1/2 tsp of salt, and mix together. Spread out in an even layer.
3. Place in oven, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, toss beans with tongs to move around a bit. Place back in the oven and back for another 10-12 minutes, until the beans are starting to shrivel and are dark in spots.
4. Remove from oven, season with salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
