by DrDan at 101 Cooking for Two July-8-2012

Dress up those green beans. Roasting always brings out the taste of veggies. Add some fresh grated parmesan cheese and you have some easy side dish heaven.


  • 8 oz green beans (4 oz per serving)
  • 2 t olive oil
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/8 t pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated (fresh preferred)


1) Preheat oven to 400 convection. Clean and trim 1/4 # green beans per serving 8 oz since we are "cooking for two". Try to use ones of constant size. The skinny ones with dry out.

2) In a medium bowl combine beans with 2 t olive oil. Mix well then add 1/4 t kosher salt and 1/8 t pepper and mix again.

3) Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the beans evenly across the paper. Cover with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (fresh preferred).

4) Bake until browning some, 10-15 minutes.
