Line up those lovely green beans on a cutting board
Trim the root ends off the beans. I like to keep the beans whole for this recipe, but if you like, you can cut them smaller
Put the beans in a large bowl
Add the olive oil to the beans
Add the salt and pepper and give them a toss
Place the beans on a sheet pan (with parchment paper if you have it) in a single layer
Roast those babies until they are brown and a bit soft. This will take between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the size of the beans. I usually check them at 15 and keep checking every 5 minutes until I love them!
Serve them up and watch them disappear! If I need them for a meal, I usually make double as everyone who walks by grabs a few while they are cooling
