Roasted Green Beans and Tomato

This is one of my absolute Fave.or.ites! This comes from one of my friends Mindy. Not only is SHE great but her recipes are great too!

Roasted Green Beans and Fresh Tomato

4 cups Green snap beans, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces

2 cups grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, cut in half or quarters

¼ cup fresh basil, cut into ribbons, divided

2 tsp minced garlic

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper, freshly ground

Cooking spray

Directions: Preheat oven to 450. Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray. Coat green beans with garlic, salt and pepper and cooking spray. Place green beans in a single layer in prepared pan. Cover and roast until desired doneness, stirring once or twice about 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine tomatoes and ½ the basil. Set aside. When beans are finished, remove from oven and spoon tomato mixture into pan; toss thoroughly. Serve hot, room temperature, or chilled, top with remaining basil.
