Ingredients I have used to make these Cheesy Green Beans
- 1 lb Fresh Green Beans - This recipe calls for Fresh Green Beans. Please do not use canned Green Beans for this recipe. The canned Green Beans won't give you the roasted texture you'll be looking forward to.
- 4 cloves of Garlic (minced) - I love to mince the Garlic and then use it so that the flavors of the garlic gets evenly distributes with the veggies. Do not replace this with Garlic Powder, as fresh garlic has its own taste which is irreplaceable.
- 2 tablespoon Olive oil - Olive Oil helps get the Green Beans roasted and crispy. You can also use melted butter in place of Olive Oil.
- 3 tablespoon Freshly Grated Parmesan - A little bit of freshly grated Parmesan cheese adds to the crispy texture of these Roasted Green Beans.
- 2 tablespoon Heavy Cream - Heavy Cream will make this dish even more comforting and delicious.
- 1 1/4 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese - Mozzarella Cheese gives these Green Beans that decadent cheesy flavor. You can also use Provolone Cheese, Monetary Jack or Gyure Cheese, or Swiss Cheese for this recipe.
- 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Freshly Cracked Black Pepper for seasoning.
How to make Cheesy Green Beans
The first step is to trim off the edges of the Green Beans.
