Delicious Green Beans with Pancetta
This healthy side dish pairs perfectly with any main dish and is easy and fast to make. It's one of may go-to side dishes and is full of flavor and great any season of the year. This will become a staple side dish in your cooking repertoire!
- 1-2 pounds fresh green beans
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2-3 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 1 large shallot chopped
- 3-4 slices pancetta (or bacon) chopped into small pieces
- 1 tsp salt to taste (or more if needed)
- ½ tsp pepper
- 1 tsp garlic seasoning salt (to taste)
In a large frying pan, heat up olive oil on medium heat. Add in chopped shallots and chopped pancetta pieces and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add in washed green beans, salt, pepper, and garlic seasoning salt. Sauté for 5-6 minutes stirring occasionally, then add in the chopped garlic.
Saute for another 2-3 mintutes being careful not to burn the garlic. Stir a few more times to make sure everything gets cooked evenly. Add in more salt and pepper if needed. Green beans take a lot of salt so add little at a time and then taste one to see if it's to your liking. I prefer mine a little more salty so just add a little at a time so you don't over season them.
Serve hot in a casserole dish or serving platter.
