I am not a fan of boiled or mushy green beans, which is why I love them roasted. They come out tender yet crisp and are so delicious, especially as a side to a dish like Baked Chicken Breasts or Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Chicken! Try these wrapped in bacon green beans too! And if green beans aren’t your thing, you can try these with Roasted Asparagus.

An easy side dish I make quite often, you can season them however you like, add some crushed red pepper for a little kick or leave the Parmesan off to keep them dairy-free. If you want to double the recipe, I suggest using two baking sheets. Serve them immediately out of the oven for best results.

How To Make Roasted Green Beans

  1. Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Drizzle green beans with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Roast them in a single layer 425F until slightly charred and tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. If desired, top with Parmesan cheese.


  • Squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the top instead of Parmesan cheese
  • Add grape halved tomatoes with the green beans and finish with a drizzle of balsamic glaze at the end.
  • Make them in the air fryer, to do so air fry the green beans in an even layer, in batches as needed 400F 4-5 minutes, until beans are starting to blacken and blister.

  1. Thank you for this recipe. I was never a big fan of green beans, but I have made this recipe several times already. I love it!

  2. I am so so sorry! Wrong recipe and wrong website! Wow. 

  3. So um, after adding the stuffing in my IP and letting it cook I opened it and it was basically a soup like consistency. Any idea what I did wrong? I used pepperidge farm cubed stuffing.

  4. Gina, thank you for making the recipes go with all the WW programs as they change! You’re awesome! Have you ever done this with asparagus? I think I’ll try that, but I’d like your input if you have. I LOVE all of your recipes! I talk about them to others like your my friend. 🤣 I’m like I made Gina’s… anyway, thanks for transitioning to WW personal points now! 

  5. Thank you for this recipe. I was looking for something where I did not have to blanch, then saute the green beans – too much work, too many pans to wash. I didn’t read the instructions thoroughly and put the parmesan on the beans when I put them in the oven but they got this crispy, crunchy cheese like a frico and it was good anyway.

  6. This is so similar to a recipe I already make, but I add cherry or grape tomatoes – so good!

  7. Gina, is there any way to do this with frozen green beans? Or are they always going to be too wet?

  8. This recipe sounds great! My husband would never eat green beans until he had mine that were cooked with bacon, onion and garlic…im gonna try this recipe but ad bacon to it…he should like it and be willing to try it!

  9. Wonderful in the airfryer!!!

  10. Just a reminder that the smoke point for EVOO is at 400 degrees F.  Thanks.

  11. Just bought some fresh green beans and looking for a different way to cook other than just steaming. Since I have always thought that Skinny Taste recipes looked great I looked there first. So many great ideas! I think I will try the green bean and Parmesan cheese recipe first. Wish me luck!

  12. Those look delicious!

  13. FANTASTIC! Even cold! Our dinner got interrupted by a call that we had to take and the beans were no worse for the wait! YUMMM!!!

  14. 1st recipe tonight😊everyone wanted the recipe.

  15. These are so easy and yummy! Best way to eat veggies is cooking them in the oven like this. Can’t wait to try more recipes like this. 

  16. These were so easy and sooo delicious! Everyone loved and we’ll be having these a lot more.

  17. Soooooo good

  18. I counted six ingredients:
    1. greens beans
    2. salt
    3. pepper
    4. garlic powder
    5. Parmesan
    6. Olive oil

  19. These are so easy and delicious! I used fresh parmesan. I will make these often. My husband told me I should make more of them next time.

  20. These turned out amazing! Fresh shredded parmesan made a big difference. I just ate an entire pan of these for dinner by themselves (and I don’t even like green beans that much usually). haha. Thanks for the recipe!
