Slender haricots verts need little embellishment. Here they're tossed with a good dose of pancetta and garlic. Once it's cooked, garlic's flavor mellows considerably. If you can't find the tiny French green beans, substitute regular green beans and increase the cook time in boiling water to five minutes to ensure they're done.
1 ounce pancetta, diced
