Green beans are delicious, but have you ever had them topped with chorizo, cheese and oven roasted? Let me tell you...they are absoulutly... insanely good! Oddly enough if a vegetable could be sexy then these fine green beans win. They are fancy enough for a holiday side but equally easy any day of the week. This recipe doesnt reaaly need measurements as I think it is an "add as much as you fancy" kind of dish. So go on and load 'em up. They are oven to table in 20 minutes.
Oven Roasted Green Beans

Grated Pecorino Romano Cheese as much as you fancy
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Pre-heat oven to 180°c/350°f
2. In an oven proof dish add green beans and drizzle on the extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Keep in mind the the cheese is salty.
