1½ pounds trimmed French green beans

4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup (8 ounces) whole-milk ricotta, excess liquid drained

¼ cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped, plus more for garnish

Zest and juice of 1 small lemon

2 large shallots, trimmed and thinly sliced

¼ cup walnuts, chopped


  1. 1. Preheat one Frigidaire Gallery® Double Wall Oven to 425°F. 2. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the green beans with 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast until crisp-tender, about 20 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir the ricotta, parsley, lemon zest and juice, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add more lemon zest and juice, salt, and pepper to taste if desired. 4. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat on the Frigidaire Gallery® Induction Cooktop. Add the shallots and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown and crisp, about 4 minutes. Add the walnuts and cook, stirring frequently, until the nuts are toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute more. 5. Spread the ricotta mixture evenly in a serving dish and top with the green beans. Sprinkle the shallot-walnut mixture on top. Garnish with parsley.
