  2. Wash, dry well, and trim green beans.
  3. Put green beans on a jelly roll pan.

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.
