Roasted green beans -- a revelation!

Wow...I just made Food & Wine's Roasted Green Beans with Lemon, Pine Nuts and Parmigiano. I have never roasted green beans before and they are fabulous...and the house smells amazing (due to the garlic). Here's the recipe, paraphrased, as it's not on the website yet.

Roasted Green Beans w/Lemon, Pine Nuts, and Parmigiano
1.25 lbs. green beans, rinsed and trimmed
1 small head garlic
1/4C + 2T extra-virgin olive oil
1-1/2T grated lemon zest, divided
2T lemon juice
1t kosher salt
1/2t pepper
1/3C pine nuts
1/4C coarsely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1T coarsely chopped parsley

Put oven racks in top and bottom third positions. Heat to 450.

Put beans in large bowl. Peel garlic, slice cloves lengthwise into quarters and add to beans. Mix in 1/4C oil, 1T zest, salt, pepper. Spread evenly on rimmed baking sheet and roast on top rack 10 minutes, stirring once. Bake 10-15 minutes more until lightly browned and tender.

Spread pine nuts on another baking sheet and toast on bottom rack 5 minutes (or just toast the nuts in a frying pan).

Put beans on platter, add lemon juice and 2T oil. Toss; add more salt/pepper to tast. Sprinkle on nuts, zest, cheese and parsley. Serve hot or at room temp.

Serves 4-6
