oven roasted green beans


green beans never tasted so delicious.  the flavor of fresh green beans is enhanced by roasting for a short time in the oven.  this side dish comes together very quickly.  i served this dish on game night and it was well received.

preheat the oven to 375 degrees.   place a sheet pan in the oven for 10 minutes to preheat the pan.  trim and clean green beans for four people.  place the beans in a bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt and ground black pepper.  i added one sliced white onion and mixed well.

remove the pan from the oven and arrange the beans on the hot pan.  bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp and tender.

i found this recipe in Sandra lee’s semi homemade magazine in the January 2011 issue.  she also added 2 sliced lemons.  instead of sliced onions, she used chopped shallots.

these green beans are a wonderful side dish for fish, chicken or even steak.
