      This was a lovely change to our usual plain green beans! I love anything with pancetta in it so this is a winner for me. I went easy on the crushed red pepper as we don't like things too spicy and the flavour was lovely. Thanks very much.

      Yummy! I made these as directed with the pancetta, but had to use some minced garlic because I was out of fresh garlic. Very good side dish. Thanks Kim. Made for Bevy Tag 2008.

      Delightful recipe- DH and I loved this! I must confess, however to not having found pancetta in the market and using the pepper bacon I had on hand (my market sadly, was out). I also used a generous DASH of crushed red pepper as DH and I love things spicy. This is a winner for us that will be repeated in our house. Thank you Kim for posting an easy way to dress up the green beans!! YUM! **Made for Beverage Tag 2008**
