This is a perfect side dish that comes together quickly! Using ready-made steamer packs cuts out most of the dishes too! The only dish you’ll need for these Pancetta Green Beans is one 12-inch sauté pan!

Pancetta gives this side dish crunch and a little bit of that something extra! The pancetta really jazzes up these green beans.
