Thank you for supporting the brands that make Saving Room for Dessert possible!
I’ve heard it from just about everyone … “what can I make for dinner that will save time and provide a balanced and nutritious meal for our family?” The answer to that question can be found in the Balance Your Plate Educational Program designed to help you put together delicious and nutritious meals that incorporate both frozen and fresh foods. While homemade meals are the “golden standard” for many families, we live in a busy world where whipping up homemade dishes every night can be challenging. Stouffer’s Macaroni & Cheese is an easy solution that you can feel good about feeding your family.
When I think of freshly made, simply frozen prepared foods that provide great value, Stouffer’s always comes to mind! Stouffer’s Mac & Cheese recipe includes real, simple ingredients, like freshly made pasta, cheddar cheese, milk and butter.

For more than 90 years Stouffer’s has served recipes made with high-quality ingredients and the same love the Stouffer family put into every recipe at the family restaurants decades ago. The Stouffer’s brand started in a small Cleveland restaurant, which later became a chain of restaurants due to the first location’s enormous success. Recognizing the quality of the meals, customers began asking for take-away versions of their favorites, so the Stouffer family began freezing and selling their popular items.
Research shows that Americans are only meeting MyPlate recommendations for vegetables, fruit, proteins, dairy and grains seven days out of 365.
That’s an eye-opening statistic. To build a balanced meal, use frozen prepared foods as your base and pair with an easy-to-make side dish made of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and/or low-fat dairy.
We love to serve our oven Roasted Green Beans with sliced sweet onions and ripe tomatoes. My father loved to eat his southern style green beans like this, so of course I do too! This recipe is something I’ve been making for years and each time I serve it, people ask what I did to the green beans to make them so good. Kids love the green beans even if they don’t want the onions so no worries. You won’t believe how easy it is to get your family loving green beans again!
Don’t forget to PIN for later!
Easy and simple green beans roasted to perfection with just the right about of seasoning
- 1 pound fresh green beans
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon no salt added spice blend (we like Mrs. Dash Table Blend)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1/4 of a whole sweet onion, sliced thin (optional)
- 1 whole tomato sliced, or a dozen cherry tomatoes sliced in half (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pour the green beans onto a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil. Spread the beans into a single layer and season with the spice blend, salt and pepper.
Bake for 5-7 minutes, then remove from the oven and stir. Place the pan back in the oven and bake for another 5-7 minutes or until the desired texture is reached.
If using the sweet onion, add it to the roasting pan once removed from the oven and toss with the cooked green beans. Allow them to rest on the hot pan for a few minutes before serving. This will take the "raw" edge off the onions - if preferred 🙂
Serve with fresh sliced tomatoes and sweet onion for the full southern experience!
We prefer our green beans a little more fresh tasting (not quite undercooked) so adjust cooking time to your preference.
