Oven-Roasted Parmesan Green Beans

This elegant side dish elevates basic green beans to a whole new level. This dish is great for entertaining because it looks and tastes like you spent a lot more time on it than you actually did.

Roasting the green beans assures they will be crisp tender and full of robust flavor. As an added bonus, the high-quality extra virgin olive oil and freshly grated Parmesan cheese greatly enhances the natural appeal of this classic side.

Tip: The green beans will become mushy if roasted too long. Test for doneness after 10 minutes and adjust final cook time accordingly.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15-20 minutes
Serves: 4


1 lb. fresh green beans, washed, trimmed and patted dry
3 large cloves garlic, finely minced
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

To Serve:

1 T. high-quality extra virgin olive oil

3 T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat™ baking mat. Set aside.

In a large bowl, toss the green beans, garlic, and olive oil together until coated. Spread the seasoned green beans on prepared baking sheet into a single layer without crowding. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.

Place the baking sheet in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or just until the beans are crisp tender, turning once halfway through.

Remove from oven and transfer beans to a serving platter or bowl. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese right before serving. Enjoy!
