Ingredients:  
Cooking oil spray
2 lbs. fresh green beans
1 large onion
8 cloves fresh garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Directions:
Directions:
1) Spray a 9 x13 pan with cooking oil spray. Rinse and drain the green beans and trim off and discard the stem ends. Place beans in pan.
2) Peel the onion and cut it into slices 1/4 inch wide. Separate the rings and scatter them over the green beans. Peel the garlic, cut the cloves in half, and scatter them over the onions.
3) Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. The pan of beans can be refrigerated, covered at this point for up to 24 hours.
4) Bake the vegetables uncovered at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes opening the oven after 10 minutes and again after 20 minutes to stir briefly. After 30 minutes, taste a bean and cook until crisp-tender--about 10 minutes more.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle with vinegar and stir well.
(This is how I copied the recipe from the website but I add more garlic, probably 10 cloves, and I bake it longer, probably 50 minutes. We like the beans a little softer but it's just personal preference. I've also added more balsamic to make it tangier.)

The roasted garlic cloves are almost like candy.
