"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1-2 tablespoon olive oil (or just enough to lightly coat beans)
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F.
Wash, dry well, and trim green beans.
Put green beans in a large bowl and add all ingredients-tossing beans lightly.
Use your hands to be sure all the beans are evenly coated and spread them out into 1 layer on a jelly roll pan.
Roast for 20-25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes, until beans are fairly brown in spots and somewhat shriveled. The darker the beans--the "sweeter" they taste!
Serve hot or at room temperature.
