1 1/2 pounds
fresh green beans, trimmed
balsamic vinegar, or more if needed
shredded Parmesan cheese, or to taste
halved grape tomatoes
Was looking for a recipe to use up some cherry tomatoes and I found this one. This is moving to the top of my side dishes list. It's excellent.
I love caramelized onions and green beans so I had great hopes for this dish. I knew the balsamic vinegar would add sweetness and had thoughts of omitting the sugar. Instead, I used just 1/4 tsp sugar and it was way too sweet for us. Salt and pepper was added to the onions with the garlic tossed in at the end of caramelizing so it would not burn and be bitter. A quick broil to melt the cheese and roast the tomatoes would save cook time.
I liked this alot! Very flavorful! I used a smaller pan for the green beans, since a 13x9 was too big to get an even layer of green beans on the bottom. Also, I used a little less onion than the recipe called for, and I used fresh grated parmesan cheese. Next time I will use more parmesan cheese to completely cover the greenish/brownish color of the onions and green beans, and maybe even mix some in with the green beans in addition to the top for extra flavor. I will definitely make this again!
