Pan Fried Salmon

Chocolate Soufflé

Pancetta is the Italian bacon that tastes more like pork than bacon.  It typically is sold sliced thinly and enhances anything it’s cooked with.  I used green beans and zucchini but it’s just as good on potatoes, asparagus, winter squash, cauliflower, or broccoli.


1 pound green beans, trimmed
2 large zucchini cut in half lengthwise and cut into 1/2″ slices
1 T olive oil
3 oz. pancetta, julienned
salt and pepper to taste
Pinch chili flakes
1/2 C water or broth


Heat the oven to 400F.

In a large bowl combine the green beans, zucchini, olive oil, pancetta, salt, pepper, and chili flakes and mix well.

Arrange in a single layer on a cookie sheet with an edge.

Pour the water into the pan.

Place in the oven and roast until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.  Serve hot.

Serves 4-6
