Method

Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Courgettes: Trim the ends, then use a potato peeler to slice the flesh into ribbons.

Step 3

Saucy bacon & greens: Place a pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil, add the bacon and fry for 5 minutes until golden. Add the green beans and sauté for 2 minutes before adding the pesto and water (120ml for 4; 60ml for 2). Mix well, then pour in the cream and cook for another 3 minutes until the green beans are almost cooked, then add the courgette ribbons and mix through for another 1 minute. You can add more water if necessary to loosen.
