Personal Rating
1 pound Green Beans, fresh, raw, with tips off
1/4 lb Bacon, chopped
1 tsp Basil, chopped
1/2 tsp Oregano, chopped
4 oz Mozzarella
1. Wash your green beans, taking off the tips. Steam them until tender, set aside.
2. Fry up bacon until crisp. Leave the fat in the pan with bacon.
3. Add the steamed beans into the fry pan and mix the bacon with green beans, scrapping off remainder of bacon of bottom of pan. Add spices. Put into casserole dish. Top with Mozzarella chees. You can cut into circles, shred. I like it all over.
4.Put in oven until cheese melts and starts to bubble. Make sure not to overcook, it will make your beans tough. Serve hot.

Looking for an asian twist? A little fusion cooking. Try adding a bit of brown seseme seeds on the top with a bit of lime or lemon juice.
