Green Beans with Pancetta and Feta


                       The forgotten side dishes. They are the dishes I look forward to the most -
                    and I post about the least. Why is that? I think it's high time I change that and
                    get working on some scrumptious side dishes for all of you. Let's talk about
                     these green beans. Sweet, salty and crunchy it will go perfect with anything
                          you cook and they are great all by themselves. Happy 4th of July.

                                                      Green Beans with Pancetta and Feta

                                    Green beans - a large bunch
                                    feta
                                    1small red onion
                                    pancetta
                                    2 garlic cloves
                                    olive oil
                                    salt and pepper

                1) In a large stock pot boil salted water and cook green beans for 5 min.
                2) Meanwhile in a frying pan. Cook onion and pancetta until almost done.
                Add your garlic and green beans. Cook until beans are done but still crisp.
                3) Place on a serving plate add your salt, pepper and feta.

                           Note. You don't have to add the pancetta. Sometimes I don't and it's
                                      still just as good. You can also add extra spices.
