This week's French Fridays with Dorie was super simple - green beans mixed with crispy pancetta and finished with a drizzle of olive oil.
Here in the South, we like our green beans cooked until they are soft, tender and are a mere shadow of what they started out as. I like to have a crisper green bean every once in a while but I knew this dish would be a tough sell to my husband and wasn't sure how my girl would recieve them. The husband hated them even after a boiled and sauteed them longer than the recipe called for and my daughter liked them quite a bit. I enjoyed the saltiness of the pancetta and also the finish with olive oil. However, I wish I had thought to use my super delicious olive oil that I bought in Chianti. All in all it was nice to have a recipe this week that only called for a few ingredients and came together quickly and easily!
