This week the ingredient on the FLAVORS blog is BEANS.
Let me start by saying I DON"T eat most beans! It must have been those lima beans my mom made me eat as a kid, or the fact that my mom told me she craved fava beans during her whole pregnancy with me (and said that was why I turned out smart!)
I don't eat chili beans, baked beans, garbanzo beans, black beans, lentils, edamame, fava beans, kidney beans, black-eyed peas, pork and beans, refried beans, bean dip, bean salad or cannelini beans. Thanks, Amy, for covering lentils for me last week!
I DO like coffee beans and vanilla beans, but didn't think that would work for this week's FLAVORS challenge. The good news is, I DO like green beans!
My recipe was very simple!
8 oz. green beans (harcourt verts)
2 oz. chopped pancetta
Spray a baking sheet. Clean and trim beans, and spread in a single layer on baking sheet. Top with shredded parm and pancetta. Roast at 400 for about 10 minutes and stick under the broiler for 2 minutes. Crispy, cheesy, delicious beans!
