Parmesan Roasted Green Beans

We're definitely in the middle of summer.  There's a major heat wave in Philly right now with excessive heat warnings for the entire week.  Thankfully I work in an air conditioned building so I shouldn't complain too much.

One of the good parts around the summer?  The summer produce!  I picked up a bunch of green beans because I couldn't wait to try this awesome recipe from Budget Savy Diva.

Parmesan Roasted Green Beans

8 oz of green beans
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400.
In a medium size mixing bowl place green beans ( trim off ends), small amount of oil ( enough to coat beans), pinch of salt and pepper. Mix till everything is covered.  Lay green beans onto a cookie sheet and sprinkle a “healthy” amount of cheese on top.  Bake for about 15 – 20 minutes – green beans should be crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Enjoy ( you can garnish with extra cheese if you like)



These were amazing!  In fact, I'm looking forward to going to our local produce store so I can make it again.  Even the little guy was a fan!
