Ingredients

1 pound French string beans, both ends removed

Kosher salt

1 red onion, large-diced

1/2 red pepper, large-diced

1/2 yellow pepper, large-diced

Good olive oil

Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Blanch the string beans in a large pot of boiling salted water for just 4 minutes. Drain immediately and immerse in a large bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. When they are cool, drain and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl toss the onion and bell peppers together with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for about 15 minutes, tossing with a spatula from time to time to be sure the vegetables roast evenly.
  4. Just before serving, reheat the string beans in a large saute pan drizzled with a little olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and arrange on a platter. Spoon the roasted vegetables over the string beans and serve hot or at room temperature.
