Frozen Green Beans-I recommend using a variety of whole green beans. The thin beans, French style, or cut green beans aren't the best for this recipe, as they can overcook and get mushy.
Spices- The green beans are tossed in a simple seasoning of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Olive Oil helps the beans roast and coats the beans in the spices.
Fresh Garlic-Minced and added towards the end of cooking so it doesn't get a bitter taste from cooking too long in the oven.
Parmesan Cheese- A nutty cheese that adds the best flavors to the green beans and pairs really well with garlic too. I suggest shredding the parmesan cheese from a block. If you use the bagged parmesan cheese, it won't melt as well.

Substitutions and Variations:
Looking for extra toppings? Try adding bacon pieces or sliced almonds.
Want some heat? Sprinkle on crushed red pepper flakes before serving.
Pecorino Romano cheese would be yummy on these beans as well. It has a similar taste to parmesan, but with more salty notes.

How to Make Frozen Roasted Green Beans:
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, toss the frozen green beans with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Step 2: Add the green beans to a casserole dish or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
Step 3: Remove the green beans from the oven and sprinkle the fresh garlic over the green beans. Top with grated parmesan cheese. Return to the oven and bake for another 8 minutes.
Step 4: If desired, top with another pinch of salt and pepper. Serve and enjoy.
- Don't allow the green beans to thaw or they will get mushy when cooking.
- I highly recommend waiting to add the garlic and cheese at the end, so they don't overcook and you get the best flavors.
It's best to bake or sauté them frozen to help them from becoming mushy.
Green beans can be really delicious, especially when combined with other flavors. Try topping them with garlic and parmesan, like in this recipe. When sautéed, they taste amazing with butter, crispy bacon, or try adding a little lemon juice. Spice green beans up by adding in some crushed red pepper flakes.
Store the leftover green beans in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat, bake in the oven on a cookie sheet or casserole dish at 350 degrees until hot.
