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.

Roasted Parmesan Green Beans

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. These are great, even without the cheese (I forgot it)! Like someone else mentioned, I might remove a few minutes from the bake time to keep them a bit firmer. This just depends on how you like them.

  2. This is a great recipe, except for one thing….you roast the green beans far too long. They turn out very soft. I roast for a total of 8-10 minutes and they turn out tender, yet not mushy.

    They’re kind of addicting. “Just one more. Ok, two more”. Couldn’t be any easier and they’re pretty, too. I’d serve them to company. That’ll never happen, but I’d do it.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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! 

  7. 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.

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

    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!

  10. 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!

    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!!!

    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. 

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  16. these turned out seriously perfect, and delicious. they were the star of family dinner, a go-to recipe for sure! so happy i came across it!

    Let me start by saying these are delicious! However, a huge pet peeve of mine is when people rate a recipe and they alter it without having tried it as the original recipe. I have learned over the past two years that I LOVE oven roasted vegetables! I learned this by accident while eating at a friends wedding reception at a high end restaurant and begrudgingly ate the carrots. They blew my mind! I asked the chef what he did to them, he said he just oven roasted them with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. I did not believe him so I tried them at home. They were just like the ones in the restaurant. NOW, to this one. I had roasted some garlic about a week ago and had put that in some olive oil to have garlic flavored olive oil. I used that olive oil on these green beans. However, I do not think it really changed the flavor of them much from what they were supposed to taste like. These green beans were AMAZING! I cooked them a little longer because hubby wasn’t home yet but on his way. I also, convection roasted them.. not sure if that made a difference either. I will say they were delicious right out of the oven, as they sat about 5+ minutes and were then cold, they were not as mind-blowing but still extremely good! Even my picky teenagers liked them. You may want to try this with cabbage or brussell spouts sliced thin… they are delicious like this too. My husband commented that the ones that were darker; appearing burnt but not, were the best one. Keep an eye on the, because oven roasted veggies can burn in a couple of minutes once they are done. Just as many of the other reviewers said; “I cannot believe I hadn’t thought of roasting green beans before!”

  18. Temp too high, cooked too long. Beans should be tender crisp. Flavor is good though. I would cook @400 degrees for 10 minutes… otherwise the recipes is good. Hate mushy green beans!!!

  19. I make these in the air fryer. 400 degrees for about 6-8 minutes. They’re amazing and one of our favorite side dishes.

  20. Made these for Thanksgiving, they were great!!   Thanks for the recipe!  I do this with Brussel sprouts and broccoli and love it, never thought of baking green beans like this! 

  21. Do you think I could cook these on the grill in a grill pan. Would like to serve with your bruschetta chicken recipe. Thank you.

  22. This is simply delicious! I cooked the green beans a bit longer than stated in the recipe and they got this caramelized layer on them that was so yummy! My husband said that he wouldn’t like the fresh green beans because he likes canned green beans, but this recipe has converted him! He ate all of them and kept telling me how amazing they tasted! haha. Thanks Gina for helping my husband enjoy eating fresh foods!

  23. Has anybody tried these in the air fryer? I wanted to avoid using my oven during these summer months as much as possible.

    I had to stop myself from eating these because they were so delicious! I loved how they were charred and the parmesan on top made them extra special! Wilmington, DE

  25. Green beans are among my least favorite veggies but after making this recipe my entire family devoured them! So delicious!

  26. This is so simple, yet it may be my favorite ST recipe. We make it probably once a week– the salty cheese makes the green beans so delicious, and it’s SO easy. We also just use spray EVOO.

    Roasted the beans with EVOO, balsamic, garlic powder, S&P for 20 min @400. Then put a piece of prosciutto down and grated a little fresh parmesan, drizzled a little fresh lemon, added some of the roasted green beans on top and rolled everything up, secured with a toothpick.  Finishing each roll on the grill to serve with big fat bone in grilled pork chops, grilled nan bread with honey goat cheese and some nice red wine. Also adding good music and wonderful friends!

  31. Wow. This makes cleaning fresh green beans worth the effort. Love the parmesan! My entire family loved this. We’ll put this on our fave list! Thanks.

  32. I’ve made these quite a few times and they are wonderful!  Passed them on to my daughters and they and their family love them too! We all love Skinnytaste!! Keep ’em coming!

  33. Made 2lbs of these for the family yesterday…wish I’d made 4lbs-ALL eaten very quickly! Will be making again.

  38. Being in my 50’s I’ve cooked many green beans many different ways and this is my all time favorite. So easy and simple. I followed the recipe exactly except I used the middle oven rack. Simple enough for everyday. Good enough for guests. 

  39. So simple. I usually don’t even like green beans, but I love these beans. I sprinkled with crushed red pepper for a little heat. Amazing!! Thank you!!

  41. This is definitely a keeper! Very simple & quick. I am going to stop at 10 minutes next time, it was plenty done for me. Would not change a thing, really like the garlic powder & Parmesan.

  42. I cooked these at 400 degrees since I was roasting radishes on another sheet pan. I used fresh garlic and left off the cheese. I think I’d use garlic powder next time since the fresh garlic got a bit dark. We enjoyed the crispness that roasting gave to the green beans.

  43. Hi! Could I make mushrooms alongside the green beans or would do they need different temps/cook times? Thanks!

  44. Love it!  I’m addicted to green beans.  Even easier on a daily basis is I buy the ones that go into the microwave.  Take them out sprinkle with truffle salt and a little parmesan.  Back in for another 30 seconds and ready to go!

  45. Roasting any vegetable makes it taste so much better. My son has always hated brussel sprouts until I served them roasted and now he can’t get enough. I’m making this for dinner tonight with green beans so it was a nice reminder 🙂

  46. That looks delicious! Roasted Brussel sprouts are one of my favourites, so I definitely have to try your beans recipe now. Thanks for posting!

  48. Hey gina, Do you think these will get too soggy if I make them and then carry them to a potluck dinner?

  49. I'm thinking these beans or the asparagus might make a good snack food if they are dehydrated after roasting.

  50. Really, really excellent. I will make this again. Served it with your Chicken Francese. 8 point dinner. Thanks for a great recipe and for including the WW points.

  51. Just made these last night and they were awesome!!. I used shredded cheddar instead. So amazing!! Thanks

    Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

    I am searching for Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup. Do you have this recipe?

  53. Gina, you might like this recipe. I made a green bean casserole for Thanksgiving that was so good and homemade. We used green beans from the garden that we had blanched then sealed and frozen, not canned. I made the cream of mushroom soup (not from the can, it was so good) and we also made the crispy onions to top it. I found it on 100 days of real food

  54. These are really good with a little bit of cajun seasoning on them too. My husband asks for them almost daily!

  55. Being a southerner, I really like "mushy" green beans, haha! BUT, these look fabulous too! I love roasted veggies, so I will be trying these soon. Thanks for the recipe! Love your whole site.

  56. I just made these tonight. Went great with a sweet potatoe. My boyfriend loved them and its a chore to get him to eat anything vegetable-like. So easy. So yummy. Will be making these again. Thanks!

  57. Made these the other night to go along with my horribly fattening Pioneer Woman's alfredo with rotisserie chicken and they were honestly my favorite part of the meal! I bought a bag of pre-snipped beans at the store and had just enough left over for the next night (and they were still just as good microwaved)! Thank you – this is my new go-to side dish. I'm going to try cooking asparagus and broccoli the same way.

  58. Made these last night to go along side bourbon pork with rice. Yum. YUM. YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM!!!!!

  59. Gina, I'm the opposite of you. I usually am not a fan of the crispy beans unless they are done just right. This recipe was perfect. Definitely a repeat keeper!

  60. For those wanting to use frozen green beans I would first cook them the way I cook my frozen veggies. So often frozen veggies are soggy so I saute mine on low to get rid of the moisture. This would be a good way to prep them for this recipe.
    I make a veggie pizza that I use frozen stir fry veggies in and prep the veggies this way.

    OMG, this looks absolutely delish! I can't wait to make this! I'm celebrating my birthday with a recipe link up and a spicy giveaway that include 4 oz of each of these spices: ground chipotle, ground cardamom, ground ceylon cinnamon, oregano, granulated garlic, and whole cumin. I'd love for you to stop by and link up this recipe and any other's that use one or more of these spices. TGIF!


  62. I heard about your blog/website today at a WW meeting. I could spend LOTS of time here, maybe TOO much time. I make these beans all the time & we love them; though I've never added parmesan. We call them 'bean fries'. lol Do you post WW points plus on your recipes? Thanks and I can't wait to keep exploring.

  63. I made your recipe tonight. Delicious and simple! I used cooking spray instead of oil to cut calories and fat. It turned out great! Thanks for posting.

  64. Just had these for supper and they were a big hit. My family was asking when we were going to have them again.

  65. Just made these for dinner and omg soo good! I showed the recipe to my mom and we were wondering if these would be a smart idea to make for a huge event…say a reception for about 150 people? Do the green beans stay crisp and tender if we had them in a roaster pan for a few hours?

  66. Made these last night – it was great! Rather than use olive oil, I used Olive oil cooking spray very lightly to lessen the calories. The green beans did perfectly well with just a light spray, rather than a drizzle of oil. I will definitely make these again.

    1. YES, I do sweet, russet and red potatoes sliced thin, green and yellow zucchini, and red/orange/green bell peppers all in the oven all roasted this way. I even do onions quartered! The house smells awesome when we roast veggies.

  67. Yummy! My version of this recipe has fresh garlic chopped fine and a little lemon jucie drizzled over after it comes out of the oven.

  68. For Thanksgiving, though, I want a green bean casserole. Found one, Gina, that has fresh green beans that don't look like they're overcooked. For all of you traditionalists out there, check this out:
    Haven't tried it, but I'm going to this year.

  69. This was very good and quick. I like quick recipes. I used frozen green beans instead of fresh it still turned out good.

  70. Made these last night and so easy and yummy! Living alone its hard to find quick, easy, HEALTHY and yummy veggies besides salad. Definitely will make these again!

    I made these tonight, along with the Lighter Chicken Saltimbocca. Both were absolutely delicious!! I don't think I'll ever make green beans another way. So good! I even topped them with leftover proscioutto from the Saltimbocca. So delicious!

  72. Made these last night with the bacon topped petite turkey meatloaf with the bbq on the meatloaf. Excellent combination! Loved these beans as did the boyfriend.

  73. going to pair this with the bacon topped turkey meatloaf, tonight. I wish I had green beans ready from the garden but, oh well. I hope it all works together.

  74. Thanks for the recipe, but I have some questions:
    Frozen- should i thaw them first?
    Parmesan- can we use the shaker kind instead of fresh grated?

  75. Fantastic!!! I'm not a big fan of veggies and have been looking for ways to introduce more into my meals. This recipe did the job!! I LOVED them!!

    Thanks for the great recipes, Gina!!

  76. If using frozen green beans, should I thaw them first, or just prepare them right out of the freezer? thanks for the recipe – can't wait to try it!

  77. This is the way I fix fresh brussel sprouts using sea salt and chopped garlic, black pepper and olive oil. We use them as an appetizer. Will try the beans this way now!

  78. Made this last night for my nephews-age 10 & 8-and boy were you right about picky kid approved! Before I had even had a chance to sit down, Jake said "DANG! There green beans are GOOD!!! I need to teach my mom how to make these!" The eight year old quickly tried them and agreed. They raved about them more when their dad came to get them and made him try them too. Green beans are already one of my top favorite foods but it is nice to have a new way to serve them! Thanks!!!

  79. These were so good! We didn't even need the parmesan. Even my green-bean-hating son ate his without a word of complaint! Will make these again soon.

  80. I am hooked, these were AMAAAZING! Using freshly grated parm I think really made for a great texture. But oh boy, I loved these. Thank you for the recipe!!!!!!!

  81. I'm so going to try this. I reblogged and linked to your site about your recipe. Check out my blog to see what I paired it with! YUM!

  82. These are amazing….a family favorite. Growing up, green beans were always from a can (homemade canned) and simmered with country ham for hours. I never even considered buying them fresh from the produce department. Now, I prepare them this way at least 2 times a week. Thank you! YUMMY!

  83. I dont know what went wrong. I did everything according to recipe and the were horrible. So disapointed. I liked the seasoning on them . But the werent good at all

  84. Loved these! I live alone so I "one fourthed" the recipe. I added a little bit of Tony Cachere's cajun seasoning (I put it on everything). These were fabulous!!!

  85. So we grilled pork chops last night, and I decided to mix up the menu a bit. I made these green beans (left off the grated parmesan since I didn't have any on hand), with Roasted Red Potatoes, and your Lemon Cheesecake Yogurt Cups for desert. OMG, it was all delicious!!!!! Everyone cleared their plates and my husband was so excited to have a little left over for a late night snack, the green beans were his favorite. Tonight I will be trying your Chicken & Spinach Pasta Bake with Rosemary Garlic Parmesan Biscuits, and hope for the same reviews. Later this week we will be trying the Skinny Chicken Enchiladas with Cilantro Lime Rice and Black Bean Brownies. I'm so thankful I found your website!!!

  86. Mine came out soggy. I used fresh beans 425 for 10 mins then stirred around then in for 5 more mins. Maybe I should try only 10 mins?

    1. Have you checked your oven temp? Is it accurate? If anything, they should have come out burned.
      If too low a temp they will not "crisp up".

  87. Oh my god Gina!!! You are an amazing woman. Why? Well…. Here's the low-down.

    I live with three bean-haters. I myself am a bean-lover.

    In comes your recipe. So I try it, you say it will convert any bean-hater so this was the test.

    Critics: OH – Mr B, Little Mr H(10yr), Little Miss E(8yr)

    Scene: Sitting at table, I serve up the beans
    Little Mr H & Little Miss E in unison: ERGH! Beans *screws up nose*
    Me: Just try them, I can assure you that you'll like them *picks up a bean and eats* HOT DAYUM! They're soooo good *picks up one from Little Miss E's plate*
    LMissE: HEY! That's mine!
    Me: Well you were the one that said yuck *grabs another*
    LMissE: WAIT!!!! *picks up a bean and eats* OH WOW!!! K this is SO GOOOOD!
    LMrH: No way! *eats a bean* YUMMMMM!
    OH: Hmmm seems you've got a winner here *picks up a bean skeptically and eats* Hey, these are pretty good.
    LMrH: Well DUH! K made it.
    Me: *smiles triumphantly*
    OH: Well I reckon these could be called Master Bean! (OH sense of humour is always a pun)

    End scene.

    So thank you so much Gina! I've converted the haters into lovers. They even requested these beans two nights later and now want to learn how to cook them!

  88. This is a great recipe ! The hubby loves it. I just add Italian Seasoning and sometimes a sprinkling of bread crumbs.

  89. I tried this recipe with asparagus and ZOMG it came out amazing! Everyone was raving about it and it was the simplest thing to make!

  90. Just tried these for dinner tonight with steaks. So good. My husband LOVED them. Definitely going to be making these again!

  91. I made these for dinner tonight! I sprinkled some chili powder on them too because I saw the idea in one of the comments. So good! Even my super picky 12yo loved them. I used frozen green beans so mine came out soggy, will definitely get some fresh ones for next time.

  92. Tried these out tonight and SO DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing such an easy and amazingly delicious recipe!

  93. Wouldn't the green beans be 0 points, which would leave only the oil and parmesan to count for points. I'm usually wrong, but I get 3 points for those, divided by 4, would be 1 point for 1 cup. Please let me know!

  94. I just used Kirkland Organic frozen green beans in this recipe and had no problems. I followed the recipe exactly and my husband and I loved the beans!

  95. Do this all the time with asparagus and broccoli and just bought green beans to try them…I use the minced garlic in the jar instead of powder though…and they're great when they get crispy and carmelized in the tips!

    1. I was just thinking I might try this with asparagus but it always makes me feel better to hear that someone else has tried it first.

  96. This was delicious. My whole family loved them! I actually forgot to add the Parmesan, but it was still so good!

  97. Made these today, and I think I will be roasting my green beans from now. They were fantastic, thanks for the great recipe.

  98. i made this tonight with haricot verts, and my 3 very picky eaters (hubby and 2 boys) liked them. i consider it a success when 2 out of the 3 ate all that was on their plates. i left out the parmesan but may try it with the cheese next time. i made something similar with broccoli, and i was the only one who liked it.

    So glad you all liked them!

    Andrea, soggy? Where they frozen green beans? Did you place it on the lower part of your oven? Not sure why it didn't work out for you.

  100. I made it last night and they tasted ok but they came out kind of soggy. But the end ones were starting to urn so I couldn't leave them in longer (I did 10 minutes stirred and did 15 more minutes). Any ideas why?

  101. Another great one! Thanks Gina for keeping the pleasure in eating… didn't know WW could be so enjoyable.

  102. I made these for dinner tonight and loved them! I could have eaten them like candy they tasted so good. Even my 2 year old ate them (dipped in ketchup, of course!)

  103. Hello, I served these with the turkey last night. They were so great, I never even sprinkled any cheese on, they were fabulous all by themselves. I never knew you could roast green beans but now that I do I will most certainly do it often. Thanks for the inspiration and Merry Christmas!

    So glad you all liked them : )

    Yes, I have a recipe here for roasted broccoli, I would follow that.

  105. Hey Gina, do you think you could do the same with broccoli? I have made these a few times and they are amazing, but the husband loves broccoli and I despise it. Thinking it could taste great this way?

  106. Ohmygoodness! I made these the other night and they are AMAZING!! Sooo good! 🙂 Love your website, Gina! 🙂

  107. I also do not really like green bean casserole becuase of the "mushy" veggies, so I tend to roast most of my veggies. For thanksgiving, I add a twist to greenbeans and wrap them in bacon! They are delicious! Go to for the recipe!

  108. I made these yesterday for Thanksgiving – soooo good! Thank you so much for all of your recipes!

  109. i made this for thansgiving, but instead of cheese i used slivered almonds. they didnt come out exactly crispy but very good none the less.

  110. I'm making these for Thanksgiving dinner – which will be eaten under a tent while tailgating!! Look and sound delicious and I know we'll love them!

  111. I know you hate green bean casserole but it's literally my favorite thing about thanksgiving!!! If you have any tips on making a healthier version I'd love to hear them! Thank you!

  112. Yum! I do this exact same thing with broccoli and it's so wonderful. I'll bet the green beans are great.

  113. Well it's a miracle Gina – roasting green beans according to your recipe has gotten my daughter to eat them!!! She has hated green beans forever but put a little olive oil, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese on them and she is fan :). DEFINITELY making these on Thanksgiving!!

  114. My husband made these last night for dinner – they were AMAZING!! We doubled the recipe and ate almost the whole pan (there were three of us). Thanks again for the recipe! 🙂

  115. I never would have thought to make green beans this way…so easy and so delicious! We gobbled up the whole pan!

    I am so glad you all liked them! I'm actually a picky eater myself, I love vegetables but only if they are cooked right. Nothing out of a can. These are so simple, and you can mix it up with different seasoning! Sesame oil and garlic would go great with my asian glazed chicken!

  117. I'm glad to have found this recipe. Made them for dinner tonight–fantastic. So simple, yet so tasty.

  118. made these tonight and hubby said i could make them every night he really liked them.. thanks again for a great recipe 🙂

  119. This looks delicious! I've been trying to find something yummy like this to serve the in-laws for Thanksgiving. They are super picky eaters. Will definitely give this a try! Thanks! I adore your blog!!

  120. I love green beans and these look wonderful. I use parmesan on fish and on chicken, so it's only natural to try it on green beans 🙂

  121. Yes! This is the best way to make green beans! Just started roasting them a few months ago and I can't get enough! I do an asian style too with a little sesame oil, soy and garlic/ginger. So yummy. Haven't tried topping it with parmesan yet so this sounds really good and can't wait to make it! Thanks Gina!

    I love this recipe, I do the same thing with asparagus! I never thought of doing it with green beans, I love that!

  123. I can't wait to try these. Ironically, I just tried your Roasted Broccoli with Smashed Garlic recipe last night and my family loved it, so this should be another hit. I'm not a huge cooked vegetable lover but these flavorful recipes help me to get my veggies in and actually enjoy them…thanks Gina!

  124. I made these last night (was planning fresh green beans anyway). They were a HUGE hit. Nice change from my steamed and sauteed green beans.

  125. I love roasted green beans! By the way, if you have access to a Trader Joe's, their frozen french beans are delicious and cheap!

  126. I will never make green bean casserole – yuk! I usually make just fresh green beans with sliced almonds, garlic and butter. Going to try these this year.

  127. This was my first time roasting green beans. They were delish! We will be having these very often. I can see this being an awesome recipe to play with adding different spices to. Thanks again Gina!

  128. Thank you, Gina! This is going to be the WW friendly veggie I contribute to our family's Thanksgiving dinner. Looks delicious.

  129. Ooh I love roasted green beans! Especially when they are a little extra crispy 🙂 I love the addition of Parmesan cheese…such a great idea!

    Yes, I love asparagus this way too!

    Paige, thanks for sharing.

    Christine you never know!!

    Emily, it adds more flavor : )

    Kris, that is my other favroite way to make them!

    Meredith, I never liked green beans as a kid until I ate them roasted or pan fried. I was a picky kid!

  131. I am so relieved to hear another person express their distaste for green bean casserole. The very thought makes me gag a little. Hooray for fresh veggies!!

  132. I make these all the time!!! I made them tonight (minus the parmesan, though) and as always, they were amazing. I'm going to start adding garlic powder to mine…great idea!

  133. Looks yummy and easy!
    I am going to get some green beans & make these!I will freeze some too, so I have some veggies to add to meals.
    Thanks for the idea!

  134. I did a similar thing with broccoli a few weeks back – DELICIOUS!!! Can't wait to try these – maybe I can actually get my kids to eat green beans since they gobbled up the broccoli :)!

  135. These look awesome! For anyone looking for a light (and non-soggy!) green bean casserole, this one is a favorite of mine:

    The recipe is vegan, but I just sub milk for soy milk and butter for margarine, etc.

    1. That is usually how I make asparagus. I like to use Cajun Seasoning for a little kick, but the Parm works well too.

    2. I use a little Mrs Dash, roast the asparagus, then sprinkle parm on after they are done but still good and hot to let the cheese melt a little. so yummy, It is the only way I can get my kids and hubby to eat asparagus, going to try the green bean recipe tonight for a healthier version of what I usually make.

    I *love* green beans — I usually steam mine but I love the flavor veggies get from roasting them. Definitely want to try this!

  137. I make ones just similiar to this. I add the oil and some chili poweder to a skillet with some garlic and warm it all up and then add the green beans to coat. Put in the oven and roast them for 10-15 mins and then put the parm cheese on them..we are having them for one of our thanksgiving side dishes

  138. I'm a creep, but I like to cook the life out of my veggies (So bad, I know), but I just love them when they are mush. These look really good though. Green beans are my fave!!

    delicious!! I love when the tips become caramelized and thus get a little crunchy.
