The Original Recipe:
I make my caulifower this way, so I thought I would try green beans! It worked like a charm!
1 bag frozen green beans (or fresh if you have them!)
3 large cloves garlic
salt and pepper to taste
EVOO

Spray cookie sheet with EVOO. Place greenbeans onto pan and spray them slightly with EVOO, too. Chop up garlic cloves and add to green beans (may use more cloves if you want, but I used really big ones). salt and pepper to taste. Roast in oven 400 degrees until tender and turning slightly crispy on ends. YUMMMMMMY!!
