One Day At A Time

Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

Roasted green beans with balsamic vinegar and olive oil….   I could have eaten the entire pan by myself.   And let me just tell you that I’m not a huge green bean fan.  Course we only eat Green Giant out of the can, so there you go.  I decided to give these roasted beans a go and am so glad I did!  Love them!

Let me just say that this picture does not make them look appetizing AT ALL!  I should have plated them all nice and pretty with a fork and napkin  …. but I was cooking fish and pasta at the same time.  You are lucky to see a picture at all!    That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.  🙂

These were super simple to make.  Buy a bag of prewashed and ready to eat fresh green beans (I think mine was a 12 oz bag).  Pour into a large ziploc bag.  Add 1 1/2 Tablespoons of olive oil and 1 Tablespoon of balsamic vinegar.  Squish it together until beans are coated.  Pour out in a single layer on foil covered cookie sheet.  Put into preheated 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.  Grate some fresh Parmesan cheese over the top and enjoy!!   I couldn’t stop eating them, right off the pan!  I was just so pleased with how they turned out.  We will definitely be having these more often!  No more canned green beans!!

Brown Rice Pasta.  I did not like this AT ALL!  It tasted all right, but was mushy and sticky.  Just not appealing.  Like whole wheat much better.

  1. If you like mushrooms, add a container of button mushrooms (any kind, thickly sliced) to the green beans in the bag. Don’t need to add any extra oil or vinegar. Cook the same. They are wonderful!
