Roasted Lemon Parmesan Green Beans Recipe

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! Are you ready? We finally decided to make a Thanksgiving feast, Josh talked me into it:) Our neighbors are coming over and it should be a fun and delicious day! Josh is in charge of the turkey and I will help with the rest! Our menu includes the following: my dad’s famous potato rolls, cranberry sauce, mashed potaters and gravy, stuffing, roasted veggies, salad, and pumpkin chocolate chip streusel cake for dessert.

Oh, and I am making Roasted Lemon Parmesan Green Beans. I don’t do green bean casserole, sorry! I know it is a staple at most Thanksgiving tables, but not ours. I prefer roasted green beans! They are easy and super tasty!

Roasted Lemon Parmesan Green Beans Recipe

You only need four ingredients to make this recipe: fresh green beans, olive oil, lemon juice, and grated Parmesan cheese. Oh, and salt and pepper, but everyone has salt and pepper on hand so I am not counting those as ingredients:)

All you have to do is drizzle the green beans with olive oil, lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Roast the green beans for a bit, remove from the oven and add the Parmesan cheese and roast for a little longer. That is it! I told you the recipe was easy! And the green beans are super delish! They are crisp with a hint of lemon and a salty Parmesan crust! I could eat the entire pan by myself and I just might since it is Thanksgiving. I am ready to get my eating on!
