Garlic Parmesan Green Beans

Some people in my family are a little more picky about what vegetables they eat than others (I won't name names:) This time of year you can find fresh green beans at the farmers market or the grocery store and we are taking advantage of it.  This is one of our favorite ways to make green beans.  This recipe is so easy and can be made for a few people or for a crowd with little preparation.  

Ingredients:
  • About a pound of Fresh Green Beans
  • Salt 
  • Pepper
  • About a Tablespoon of Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • About 2 tsp of Olive Oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
Serves about 6

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Make sure green beans are clean and dry.  
 Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up.  Drizzle olive oil over beans.  Lightly sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  (be careful not to over salt...remember you can always add more after they are cooked).  Toss green beans to coat.  Create a single layer of beans on the baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven.  Using spatula flip the green beans around and return to oven for 5 more minutes.  Remove from oven, top with Parmesan, and serve.  

I served this with Spicy Teriyaki Chicken Thighs and Honey Roasted Redskin Potatoes.  The flavors all complimented one another PERFECT!

Green Beans are a family favorite veggie so I make them often...
