Ingredients

  • 1 pound (500 g) green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (or 4 cloves garlic, minced)
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese shredded

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet with nonstick cooking oil spray. 
  2. Arrange green beans on baking sheet in a single layer. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl mix together olive oil, parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper. Drizzle the oil mixture over the green beans and toss to evenly coat.
