Parmesan Roasted Green Beans are simple and delicious!
This recipe for Parmesan Roasted Green Beans is a great way to “dress up” plain ol’ green beans. I like them cooked until they almost look burnt. They become so tender.
This kind of green bean looks so fancy, as opposed to the canned variety. Not that I don’t eat the canned variety, because we do, occasionally. My daughter has a recipe using canned green beans that she makes for her husband and his family to go with our Thanksgiving dinner. One of these days I will share that recipe as well.
Another great way to make these is to put them on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, toss, and roast. So simple and delicious!
I mix the ingredients together in a small bowl (except the olive oil) and then sprinkle it on the beans and then toss to coat right there on the sheet pan. You could also put everything in a bowl and toss and then transfer to a sheet pan. You would not have the extra stuff on the sheet pan. I would rather not dirty another dish.
These green beans go great with Mini Meat Loaf and will cook at the same temperature. You would just wait until the meat loaves are in the oven for about 5 minutes before you put the beans in. I really like making dishes that can be cooked in about the same amount of time.
This Herb Roasted Pork Tenderloin would also go great with these beans. You just have to put the green beans in the 400° oven about 5-10 minutes before you put the tenderloin in. The pork has to rest, so if you put the beans in early and leave them in while the roast rests, everything would get done in about the same time.
If you make these with one of the suggested recipes above, all you have to do is add some mashed potatoes or boil-in-bag rice and you could have a dinner like this on the table in around 45 minutes, start to finish.
Both of these options are healthy too!
