Dress up those green beans. Roasting always brings out the taste of veggies. Add some fresh grated Parmesan cheese and you have some easy side dish heaven.
I first saw this recipe as a post on Pinterest (Budget Savvy Diva) and after some research found a Tyler Florence recipe on Food Network. So I somewhat combined the techniques…. I don’t “drizzle and the times disagreed.
A solid 4.
Try to use beans that are about the same size. The skinny ones seemed to over cook and were a little dry. I mentioned the disagreement in cooking time. Tyler 10-15 minutes and the other post at 15-20. Since I cooked on convection I went with 15 and it was just right. 20 would be too long.
Preheat oven to 400 convection. Clean and trim 1/4 # green beans per serving 8 oz since we are “cooking for two”. Try to use ones of constant size. The skinny ones with dry out.
In a medium bowl combine beans with 2 t olive oil. Mix well then add 1/4 t kosher salt and 1/8 t pepper and mix again.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the beans evenly across the paper. Cover with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (fresh preferred).
Bake until browning some, 10-15 minutes.
