Recipe: Parmesan Roasted Green Beans

I don’t know about you but I’m always on the look-out for a good sde dish recipe.. especially vegetables… not because we don’t like plain vegetables…. We just get tired of the same thing over and over…

This recipe for Parmesan Roasted Green Beans is a quick and easy way to spruce up green beans… a perfect side to grilled meats.

This terrific green bean recipe is one I've made for years... but forgot about it... and noticed it recently on the Food Network website by Tyler Florence ... I'm glad he reminded me of it... this recipe is tops!


My green beans did not really crisp up that much… but they were delicious…

These take minutes to prepare and just might help to get that picky eater to eat their green beans!

Recipe: Parmesan Roasted Green Beans

All you need:

Fresh green beans
Olive oil
Grated Parmesan cheese

All you need to do:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with foil (optional – just easier for clean-up).

Place the green beans in a large bowl.

Drizzle a little live oil over the green beans.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Toss the green beans to coat them evenly.

Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the green beans.

Toss again… to coat the beans evenly with the Parmesan cheese.

Lay the green beans in a single layer on the foil lined baking sheet.

Bake until the cheese melts and the beans turn a light golden brown…. (the picture above does not do it justice.. they were a pale tan color)or until desired crispiness.

Ahhh Sue... I'm jealous.. you must have a garden... I miss somethings about NY... the farmstands for one.. and the ability to have a nice garden... it's just too hot down in south Georgia to have one and what people think is great produce here... they have NO idea just what you can get in other parts of the country... enjoy! The recipe is a great little one.
