Pine nuts lend a sweet, rich flavor to this green bean dish. The seeds of pine trees, the nuts are nestled in the scales of the trees' cones. Because the nuts have a high fat content, they go rancid quickly, so be sure to store them in the refrigerator.

  • 92


  • 8 oz. pancetta, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 lb. green beans, trimmed and blanched until
      almost tender
  • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County from our Wine Club.


In an oval roaster over medium heat, cook the pancetta until browned and crispy, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the pancetta to a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.

Return the pan to medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the green beans and cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the pancetta and pine nuts, and season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the beans to a warmed platter and serve immediately. Serves 8 to 10.
