Shrimp with Romano beans Add to ...

I use canned beans here but you can cook your own. Serve this exceptionally tasty dish with greens. It also makes a good first course.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 ounces (60 grams) pancetta, chopped

½ cup chopped onions

1 540 ml can Romano beans, drained and rinsed

1 pound (500 grams) large shrimps

Preheat oven to 400F. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add pancetta, onions and garlic. Sauté for two minutes or until softened.

Add thyme and tomatoes. Turn heat to medium low and simmer gently for 10 minutes, or until thickened and flavourful. Add beans and cook for five minutes more, or until tasty and heated through.
