A CookTale

Of the many Green Bean dishes, this is a standout. It looks as “good as it tastes and it’s a sure “crowd pleaser” (if you ever have to serve a crowd). I don’t remember how I stumbled on this recipe, after trying every conceivable combination, but it has become my fall back recipe.


8 Ounces of fresh Green Beans
4 TB of freshly made Bread Crumbs
3 TB of Grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt & fresh Pepper to taste
2 TB of Olive Oil


1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. Heat a pot of water to a boil. Parboil the Beans for 4 minutes.
Drain & blot dry.
3. Add the 2 TB of EVOO, the Parmesan Cheese & Bread Crumbs. Toss it all together.
3. Place in an oven proof dish & roast until it’s caramelized and slightly charred. About 15 minutes or to taste
4. Plate & serve.
