Parmesan-Roasted Green Beans Recipe

5 ingredients and 20 minutes  – that is all. I LOVE french fries, but I would choose these green beans over french fries any day of the week. There is a little crunch to them but they are FULL of flavor.  This recipe is Gluten- Free

I have a similar recipe except I add in sliced almonds…so much better than that cream of mushroom stuff!


Christine March 26, 2012 at 12:14 pm

Made this yesterday. I didn’t have fresh green beans but tried with the organic, whole frozen french beans I had on hand. Thawed them on counter, blotted excess moisture and proceeded with recipe. Wow! It could not have been simpler and more delicious. I am always on the lookout for great “company” food. This fits the bill for great flavors and ease. All five people in my family loved them! Thanks!


cdanna March 28, 2012 at 1:06 am

what is on top of the beans in the photo?


Budget Savvy Diva March 28, 2012 at 1:06 am

It is the cheese


Julie March 30, 2012 at 11:32 pm

I made this tonight and I was really surprised by how much I liked it. I don’t really like green beans or that much parmesean, but the combination was really yummy. Thanks for sharing this. I will definitely make it again.


Sue April 3, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Making this tonight. I’ll let you know how it turns out. I love asparagus done this way. Hoping for the best!


Sue April 4, 2012 at 12:35 am

Turned out great! My husband wasn’t quite as thrilled with them as I was. I think I could have cooked them 15 min instead of 20 because they were smaller beans. Great flavor though. I’ll be doing this recipe again! Thanks!


Sharon McCartney April 8, 2012 at 1:22 pm

ooooooo! I have to try this!


Melissa April 8, 2012 at 4:19 pm

This looks so easy, and sooo yummy! Cant wait to try. Just one thing, Ive tried to print this recipe quite a few times, and it keeps taking me to advertising pages. I cant even hover over the print link without it doing an infolinks popup. Just a little fyi.


Budget Savvy Diva April 8, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Try clicking the little printer icon


Elisha Gonzalez April 13, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Did you spray the cookie sheet, cover it with foil, or is the olive oil enough to keep the beans from sticking to it?


Budget Savvy Diva April 13, 2012 at 9:17 pm

I use parchment paper.


Roberta April 20, 2012 at 3:50 pm

Just bought the ingredients and will be trying it out this week. Looks and sounds delicious!!


Mel April 23, 2012 at 2:54 am

Made these tonight. They were wonderful. Everyone loved them. My cheese didn’t toast as much as in the picture but the beans had just the right amout of crunch. We will definitely make these again. May add fresh portobello mushrooms next time.


stephanie April 23, 2012 at 9:59 pm

if using fresh green beans do you need to boil them first?


Jane May 20, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Made this recipe today using fresh green beans and loved them. Thanks so much for a fantastic recipe that will be made again and again.


G. May 22, 2012 at 10:29 pm

Made these tonight. Turned out good. Although next time I’d bake it for 10 minutes so that it’s still crunchy. However, my husband and daughter enjoyed it, they’re not big on cooked green beans.


Budget Savvy Diva May 22, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Yay!! I am glad your family liked the recipe


Wickless Candles May 27, 2012 at 10:53 pm

PERFECTION! I was pondering on what to make as a side dish tonight with our grilled chicken when I stumbled upon your recipe. Sounds delicious, thank you very much for sharing!!


Ashley July 18, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Can you use frozen whole green beans with this recipe? If so, any tips so they will still come out similar/crunchy? Thanks!


Missa July 19, 2012 at 12:40 am

I picked up green beans at the Farmers’ Market yesterday, so I could make these tonight! They are delicious! Thanks for the recipe!


Carol Anne Roth-Walter August 9, 2012 at 11:32 pm

Yum, Yum, Yum! Consider it pinned!


Jessica August 11, 2012 at 9:16 pm

I love your website and the delicious recipes! Thanks for sharing :) However, I am NOT impressed with all of the ads….I hate the infolink ads within the text of the recipe, it makes it difficult and annoying! Great recipe though, I’ll be using it again :)


Budget Savvy Diva August 11, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Sorry about the ads :(


Vicki August 26, 2012 at 9:25 pm

I bet this would be good with a little BBQ sauce
added at the last couple of minutes.


Amanda September 14, 2012 at 12:39 am

Making this right now. Added some thin sliced prosciutto.


Sissa September 18, 2012 at 7:35 pm

I have made this several times. My family loves it. It is also good with a little balsamic vinegar added. Yummy!


Budget Savvy Diva September 18, 2012 at 7:46 pm

What an awesome idea :)


Casey Lawson November 28, 2012 at 12:44 am

I have to say that I made this last night for the first time for me and my boyfriend along with the ranch chicken penne and the balsamic roasted potatoes and it was delicious…..definitely sharing this with friends!!!


Heather November 28, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Can you use canned green beans ?


Budget Savvy Diva November 28, 2012 at 7:30 pm

I would use fresh — but it still will work with canned


Vero December 30, 2012 at 9:56 am

Do you think this will work with asparagus?


Ronda May 9, 2013 at 4:30 pm

I’ve done this with fresh broccoli, too. Out of this world!


Susan May 12, 2013 at 2:19 pm

Bet roasted slivered almonds would be great. Going to try this one.


Sweetasha09 May 18, 2013 at 8:41 pm

This sounds delicious! I can’t wait to try it… Thank you for sharing!!!!


Sue May 21, 2013 at 2:47 am

Made it. Loved it. Kids complained there wasn’t enough!


Watson May 21, 2013 at 4:04 am



Kathy May 21, 2013 at 11:32 pm

I have Parmesan in a jar will this work? thanks


Watson May 21, 2013 at 11:44 pm



Kathy May 22, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Thanks, cooking it tonight!!!


Heather Hughes May 23, 2013 at 2:22 am

Found you through Pinterest. I tried the recipe last night & loved it!
Thank you!


Latha May 23, 2013 at 4:53 pm

I found this thru pinterest and tried it last week. My mom, my daughter and I fell in love and we made the second batch the same day :) My husband isn’t thrilled but I am in love with it. Thanks again for the recipe!


sherry June 8, 2013 at 11:56 pm

I made these tonight with grilled flank steak and twice baked potatoes. They were amazing! I didn’t have any fresh green beans on hand, so I microwaved frozen ones for 3 minutes then gently squeezed as much water out as possible. Then I followed the recipe from there. Definitely a keeper!


Watson June 9, 2013 at 1:51 am

Oh good — this recipe is pretty much amazing


gibbs June 10, 2013 at 7:06 am

Is it grated or shredded fresh cheese?


Watson June 10, 2013 at 2:17 pm

that is what I used


Kimberly June 18, 2013 at 5:31 pm

Do you use grated cheese in a can or fresh cheese from the deli section?


Watson June 18, 2013 at 5:34 pm

I used fresh cheese :)


Sophie July 13, 2013 at 4:33 am

We love green beans at our house, am going to try this. What is the other item on the beans that is in the picture? Looks like bacon bits or roasted tomatoes.


AlixE January 26, 2014 at 4:42 pm

I switched the oil for Bragg Liquid Aminos (coconut) and used Nutritional Yeast Seasoning instead of the Parmesan. Tasted great and will use on your zucchini & asparagus recipes too!! Thanks -;)


Blanca Carrillo February 21, 2014 at 2:16 am

THIS IS AMAZING! I absolutely love green beans so this was just omg delicious will be making them more often thank you.


Lisa Soared February 21, 2014 at 3:03 am
