Step by step recipe:
Prepare and wash 500 g green beans, then cut into short lengths.
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the beans quickly, just 5 minutes from the time the water comes back to the boil.
Cool under cold water, then drain.
Prepare 2 springs onion and chop.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large pan, then add the chopped onions, salt and pepper. Cook while stirring for 2 minutes.
Add 150 g small pieces of bacon, mix well and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Add the drained beans and mix well. You will see that this soaks up all the fat in the bottom of the pan.
Add the tomatoes, salt lightly and cover.
