1 pound green beans
3 small red potatoes
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 -2 tbls olive oil (I used garlic flavored)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp chili powder

Preheat oven to 375

- Wash and trim the green beans, wash and thinly slice the potatoes and toss them into a plastic baggie. Add the oil, garlic, and other seasonings into the bag and shake to coat. Lay a piece of foil onto a cookie sheet (about 12" long) and dump the mixture onto the middle of the foil. Place another piece of foil over top and fold the two layers together to make a pouch that no air will escape from. Place into preheated oven and cook for 20-25 minutes. Transfer to serving dish and top with Parmesan cheese if desired.
