Green Beans with Pancetta and Shallots

Green Beans with Pancetta and ShallotsThis turned out to be a wonderful side dish. I picked up some fresh green beans at the store and thought they would taste really good cooked with pancetta and a little shallot. The green beans were perfectly cooked yet still crisp and the pancetta was a bit salty. My son ate two servings of these beauties–can’t beat that. Simple ingredients, easy to make and so delicious.

Green Beans with Pancetta and Shallots:


  • 1 large handful of green beans, ends trimmed and cleaned
  • 1 small shallot, sliced thinly
  • 2 tbsp pancetta, diced finely
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
