Vegetables - Green Beans

Finding an entre' is normally fairly simple.  The question of a side dish, however, can be very frustrating.  You start running the last week's menu through  your mind since you don't want the family (or just yourself!) getting bored with what you cook.  And they will.  People notice the veggies.  Don't be fooled.
In the South, many times the family would find themselves with limited funds with which to purchase a wide variety.  Most would have some cured bacon in the larder and that staple, green beans.
By the way .. homemade Italian dressing will be fine.
Thanks to Jennnifer Heitmann for this recipe.
