Bacon Green Beans With Pine Nuts

It's hard to come up with a new way to flavor vegetables.  I decided to try a few additions to green beans and I liked how it turned out.  I've used bacon before (with pears) so I wanted to try that again but this time with toasted pine nuts.  The pine nuts are so good on their own that I might try making a snack mix with them sometime.





Bacon Green Beans With Pine Nuts

1# green beans, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup pine nuts, toasted
2 slices bacon, cut into 1/2" pieces, cooked and drained
1 tbsp butter
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Cook green beans in salted water.  Drain, toss in butter, bacon, pine nuts and seasonings.  Serve immediately.
