This year, my garden produced a TON of green beans! There is nothing like fresh beans picked from the vine. They’re perfect! With so many on hand, I began searching for new green bean recipes. That’s when I stumbled upon this great recipe for Parmesan Roasted Green Beans on a great blog I found — Cooking Tip of the Day.
2 cups fresh green beans
2 Tbsp olive oil
Grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the green beans in a large bowl. Drizzle olive 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 a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese melts and the beans turn a light golden brown.
Is it a Keeper?
The first time I made these, I made enough my husband and I (my son had eaten at his grandparent’s house that night). I had every intention of sharing these with Jim. I’m ashamed to admit, though, that he didn’t get any green beans that night.
As soon as they came out of the oven, I tasted one. And then another. And then another….I think you get where this is going. Before I knew it, there were all gone.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this recipe this summer. We all love these beans. The only other thing I added to the recipe above was 1-2 cloves of minced garlic. Everything’s better with garlic in my book.
I HIGHLY recommend making this recipe! In fact, what are you having for dinner tonight?!?
Also, be sure to check out some of the other great websites and blogs that I’ve found. Their links are to the right —>
