Roasted Green Beans

Wow.  These green beans are amazing!  This is one of the easiest "recipes" ever and the results are simply wonderful.  I'm not the biggest green bean fan and yet I started snacking on these (with my hands of course, no utensils) almost as soon as they came out of the oven and I had a hard time stopping.  The roasting must bring out some special green bean goodness that a simple steaming can't do.  I don't know if I'll ever go back to regular green beans again.

Serves 4 as a side dish

1 lb. green beans, trimmed and washed
1 T. olive oil
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. freshly cracked black pepper

Preheat your oven to 400F and place the green beans on a jelly roll pan.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast for 25 minutes, stirring the green beans around the 18 minute mark.  Serve hot.
