FFwD: Pancetta Green Beans

This recipe, for Pancetta Green Beans, is very similar to how I usually cook green beans, except for the addition of the pancetta.

Usually, I steam green beans in a frying pan (saute pan) in a small amount of water for about 6-7 minutes, drain, then toss them with butter and salt.

The addition of some sauteed pancetta just adds another dimension to the beans. Quick. Easy. Bacon.

How can it not taste wonderful?

Stop by French Fridays with Dorie for more deliciousness.

Agreed on all levels - file under the "what's not to love". In fact, I am not sure what I would have done if this actually didn't taste good. Given the ingredients I think I would have taken it personally :) Big hit in our house and Nana's house. Score another hit for Dorie and FF.
