Roasted green beans and tomatoes

We eat vegetables daily so I’m always trying to find new ways to get the kids to like them. These sun-dried tomato green beans are flavorful and perfect for any Italian themed dinner or summer night.

We enjoy them cooked fresh and vibrantly so they’re still crunchy, but even if you forget them in the oven and cook them a little longer they still turn out fabulous when softer.

My favorite part of this side dish is that it’s all made in one bowl. Just toss together, throw on a baking sheet and cook for several minutes while salivating as the aroma fills the room.

Tips for making baked green beans and tomatoes

You can use dried or marinated sun-dried tomatoes for this recipe. I’ve tried it with both and there’s no difference. You are also welcome to add even more tomatoes if you truly enjoy the flavor profile but just this small amount is enough to give a great essence throughout the dish.

You can also choose between pearl onions or thinly sliced regular onions. With regular onions you won’t even need half a small one, Just a few small slices (like 3 or 4) is plenty.

FAQ’s about Italian green beans

How long are Italian green beans good for?

You can keep this side dish’s leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3-5 days. For best results, I recommend eating it within 3 days.

Can I prepare Italian green beans in advance?

Yes, you can prepare the entire dish beforehand and simply keep it in a covered bowl or Ziploc bag until ready to eat. This gives the flavor longer to develop as well. I recommend not making it more than a day in advance.

How to prepare fresh green beans

Wash your green beans and trim off the ends on both sides to remove the wooden-like stems. These won’t soften while coking and are unpleasant to bite down on. Rinse again if desired and pat dry the greens before using to avoid adding too much moisture into the recipe.
