Parmesan Green Beans


New ways of making veggies are always welcomed in my kitchen and this one is a keeper.  It’s SO fast and effortless and the results are absolutely delicious.  I’ve often roasted broccoli and cauliflower using this method so when I saw this recipe for green beans I knew I had to try it; with a few modifications.  Recipes like this make me feel like it’s possible for anyone to get a healthful, balanced meal on the table no matter what kind of day they’ve had…pair this with grilled shrimp or fish and you have yourself a great dinner in less than 20 minutes.
