2 tablespoons sliced almonds
12 ounces green beans, ends trimmed
1 scant tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a dry skillet over low to medium-low heat for few minutes until lightly golden. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a bowl, toss the beans with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.
Arrange the coated beans in a single layer in a baking dish, roasting pan, or cookie sheet.
Roast the beans in the oven for 10-25 minutes, turning them once or twice, until the beans are cooked to the desired tenderness.
Transfer the beans to serving plate(s) and sprinkle the toasted almonds over the beans.
