Oven Roasted Garlic Green Beans

Original Recipe HERE

Doesn't get much easier than this.  Both kids thought it was good, especially with liberal amounts of finely shredded Asiago cheese dumped on the beans.  I thought they were tasty as well but too salty.  Next time I'll just omit the salt entirely and rely on the garlic to provide enough flavor.

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 pound green beans, washed and trimmed
1 to 2 Tablespoons minced or pressed garlic [I used 5 cloves]
Pepper to taste
1-2 Tbsp grated or shredded parmesan, optional [or other cheese of choice]

(1) Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil.
(2) In a mixing bowl, add the olive oil, green beans, minced garlic, and pepper. Toss well.
(3) Spread the beans onto the foiled lined baking sheet.
(4) Roast in the oven for 5 minutes.  Toss quickly; roast an additional 3 to 4 minutes.
(5) Let cool slightly.  Sprinkle each serving with cheese if using.

Kid Participation: None.
