Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 30 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 4 oz cubed pancetta
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1-12 oz package frozen petite or French cut green beans
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds


  • Sauté pancetta and garlic over medium heat for about a few minutes, or until desired level of crispiness is achieved. Remove pancetta and garlic and set aside in a bowl.
  • Add green beans, onion powder, salt, and pepper to pan. If you want a little more oil, add a tsp of olive oil. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the beans are hot all the way through.
  • While the beans are cooking, toast the almond slivers in a separate pan over medium heat. These will burn quickly, so keep an eye on them and toss them often.
  • When green beans are done, add the pancetta and garlic back to the pan and warm. Toss in the slivered almonds and mix to combine.
