Sometimes simple is best. Just a few seasonings accentuate the natural flavors of sweet tomatoes and roasted green beans.

Ingredients

olive oil cooking spray

3 spray(s)

uncooked green snap beans

4 cup(s), trimmed

grape tomatoes

2 cup(s), or cherry tomatoes, cut in half (or quartered, if large)

basil

¼ cup(s), fresh, cut into ribbons, divided

minced garlic

2 tsp, or less to taste

table salt

½ tsp, or more to taste

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground, or more to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place green beans in a single layer in prepared pan and coat with cooking spray. Roast until desired doneness, stirring once or twice, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of basil, garlic, salt and pepper; set aside.
  4. When green beans are finished, remove from oven and spoon tomato mixture into pan; toss thoroughly. Serve hot, room temperature or chilled, topped with remaining 2 tablespoons of basil. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

Notes

This is the perfect side for a burger, grilled chicken or steak.It's also delicious added to marinara sauce and then tossed with pasta and shredded cheese.
