Our family loves these. What a healthy, nice recipe!
(Update) While I really liked them when I first made these, after a few changes, I am loving them even more. I used extra fine frozen greens beans from Aldi. I roasted them (frozen) at 420 for 40-50 minutes. I also omitted the pepper. I served them with balsamic reduction (just boil a cup of balsamic vinegar for about 20 minutes or until it reduces a little to make a light syrup). Soooo fantastic this way!! Would highly recommend trying them with the vinegar reduction.

For an extra touch you can finish them off with a little Parmesan and a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice. But they are perfect "as is" too.

This really doesn't need another five star rating, but I have to give it one anyway! I roasted a mountain of green beans from Costco in a glass baking dish, and didn't measure anything. I used olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, and garlic salt. Yum. It probably took about forty minutes of roasting time Yum.

Great recipe! It's easier to get the beans to brown if the pan isn't crowded. Another recipe I have says to turn up the oven to 500, so I went with 450. I added about 10 cloves of peeled and lightly crushed garlic and salted the beans once they were roasted. Pure heaven! Thanks.

I am not a fan of fresh green beans so I was very wary of preparing these, however, I needn't have been. I did adjust the recipe just a tad, adding grated garlic and parmesan cheese to the beans prior to roasting. I am actually looking forward to making these again - soon. Thanks for posting Seamouse and showing me I, too, can like fresh green beans :)

What a wonderful treat. Everyone loved this dish. I added sliced Vadalia onions to the green beans, along with Mrs. Dash, which added a sweet taste. This did take me 50 minutes to roast.

I doubled this recipe and prepared it while we were on vacation -- everyone between the ages of 12 months to 82 loved them! I poured the oil and salt into a 2 gallon ziploc bag, then shook with the beans for even coating. Thanks for sharing.

i just made these with my thanksgiving dinner and they were great. the only changes i made was to use a little unsalted butter instead of the oil, and i added thinly sliced onions. i ended up cooking them for closer to 45 minutes but they were great! I also made them the night before and they reheated very nicely. these are so good that i kept picking at them even while they were cold in the fridge! thanks for posting!

Love these! I agree, no matter how many I make, it's never enough. I use frozen organic whole green beans from Costco with good results. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
