  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Toss green beans with cooking oil and season with some salt and pepper. Spread beans out onto one side of a sheet pan. Place mushrooms onto second half of sheet pan (use two sheet pans if it won't fit easily). Brush mushrooms on both sides with some oil. Transfer pan to oven and roast until mushrooms are starting to soften, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Remove pan from oven. If mushrooms have released a lot of moisture, blot them with paper towels until dry. Spoon in cheese and pesto filling. Top with panko breadcrumbs, pressing breadcrumbs lightly into the filling.
  4. Return pan to oven and continue roasting until green beans are tender and cheese is melted, 10 to 12 minutes more.
  5. Toss green beans with lemon juice and almonds.
  6. Serve mushrooms with green beans on the side. Enjoy!
