Roasted Green Beans

Roasted Green Beans

Green beans are my favorite vegetable forever and ever….always have been, always will be. Canned, boiled, sautéed, with bacon and without (though always better with bacon!), you can’t go wrong with them. But roasting them is by far the best way to serve them….even my…
