You’ll Never Want Green Beans Any Other Way Than This

There are two ingredients that make just about anything taste good: garlic and cheese. While we wouldn’t necessarily use the combo when making ice cream (though, don’t tempt us), it will make these green beans your favorite side.


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
  • ½ cup Parmesan, grated
  • ¼ cup mozzarella, grated


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. 
  2. On a large sheet pan, toss the green beans with oil and salt. Place in the oven and toss after 7 minutes. Roast for 10-15 minutes, until the beans are crisp but tender. 
  3. Toss green beans again and sprinkle with garlic and pepper. Top with Parmesan and mozzarella.
  4. Heat the broiler and broil the beans until the cheese is melted and golden brown. This should take 2 to 3 minutes but watch closely to ensure the cheese does not burn. Season with more pepper and serve.
