    Wow! This recipe transformed dull green beans into a flavorful, gourmet scene stealer. The best part was the simplicity. I have no idea where to find champagne vinegar, so I substituted white wine vinegar. I also had something else in the oven, so I had to roast the beans on a lower temperature for a few minutes longer. This recipe is pretty much foolproof. I may treat asparagus to the same method in the very near future.
