Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic and Parmesan

Oh my goodness - Pinterest is the BEST place to find recipes!  If you are not on Pinterest, let me know and I'll send you an invite!!  You probably have seen this one out on Pinterest...that's where I found this recipe.  I made it last Sunday night and it was so great!  It's a different way to make green beans but has the best flavor ever!  This one is Gluten Free and really good for you!  Goes great with steak or chicken or fish!  Enjoy!


8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced in 1/2 inch slices
1lb fresh green beans, preferably thin French style beans (I get mine at Costco)
1 1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons finely grated Parmesan Cheese


Preheat oven to 450F.  Wash mushrooms and let drain.  While mushrooms are drying, trim ends off beans and cut beans in half so they are bite size pieces.

Put cut green beans and mushrooms into Ziploc bag or plastic bowl. Whisk together olive oil and balsamic vinegar and pour over, then squeeze bag or stir until all beans and mushrooms are lightly coated with the mixture.  Arrange in a 13x9 Pyrex dish and cook them for 30 minutes .  Cook until beans are tender and crisp.  All liquid should have evaporated.  Season beans to taste with salt and pepper and sprinkle with grated Parmesan.  Serve hot.  Makes 4-6 servings
