15 min cooking time
Cooking spray (olive oil is best)
4 c green snap beans, trimmed
2 c grape tomatoes, or cherry tomatoes, cut in half (or quartered if large)
¼ c basil, fresh, cut into ribbons, divided
2 t minced garlic, or less to taste
½ t table salt, or more to taste
¼ t black pepper, freshly ground, or more to taste
Preheat oven* to 450 degrees. Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray.
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.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, 2 T of basil, garlic, salt, and pepper; set aside.
When beans are finished, remove from oven and spoon tomato mixture into pan; toss thoroughly. Serve hot, room temperature, or chilled, topped with remaining 2T of basil.
