This is a festive dish for the holidays and an easy way to get the veggies on the plate. The colors couldn’t be more perfect for Christmas dinner. The green beans look like holiday greens while the roasted tomatoes resemble tree ornaments! The dish is super easy, especially when you purchase a package of pre-washed microwaveable green beans. Toss the beans and tomatoes in 2 tablespoon of olive oil, season to taste with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper and roast in a 400-degree oven for 18-20 minutes, or just until the tomatoes look like they’re about to pop. Roasted green beans and cherry tomatoes 1 12 ounce bag of package pre-washed, microwaveable green beans 1 12-13 ounce basket of cherry tomatoes 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon sea salt 1 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss all ingredients in a bowl and spread out in an 11x13 inch casserole dish. Roast for 18-20 minutes, or until beans are beginning to brown slightly and tomatoes are plump and just about ready to pop. Serve immediately. Susie can be reached at
