Preheat the oven to 400F / 200C / 180 fan.
Place green beans, salt, olive oil and garlic on baking tray and roast for about 20 minutes until soft.
Add the bacon to nonstick frying pan. Sauté for 2.5 minutes on a medium heat then add the mushrooms, 1 tablespoon butter and thyme leaves. Sauté for 2.5 minutes. Season with pepper and optional salt to taste.
Fry onions in 1 tablespoon of butter until soft, about 2 minutes. (Option to sauté with the mushrooms if you prefer and add the extra butter.)
Add the cream cheese, butter and heavy cream to a clean saucepan over a low heat. Whisk with a balloon whisk until melted.
Add the cheese and whisk until fully melted. Thin with about 1 tablespoon of water. Season with salt and pepper and any additional flavorings you may wish to add.
Remove the skins from the roasted garlic and mince using a garlic press or chop and stir through the sauce.
Arrange the green beans and bacon / mushroom / onion mix in a baking dish. Pour over the white sauce (don’t worry it gets more saucy as it cooks!) Top with parmesan.
Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and cook for a further 15 minutes or until golden on top.
