The Husbands Fave Green Beans

Looks pretty good, huh?? :D

1 lb fresh green beans (my package was actually 12 oz in a sealed pouch you can microwave them in) steamed for 2 minutes in the microwave.
1/2 lbs bacon, chopped (I cut the package of bacon in half and then diced it up)
1 medium onion, sliced
4 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced (half a little box is what I had in the fridge)
2 large cloves garlic, minced (3 or 4 if they are puny)
1 cup marsala wine

Start by browning the bacon in a large skillet.. Once its all nice and brown and crisp, remove it from the pan with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with a paper towel and set aside. Leave the drippings in the pan and throw in the onions and mushrooms. Cook the onions and mushrooms until the mushrooms are nice and brown and the onion is soft and translucent. Add a heavy pinch of salt and throw in the garlic. Let this brown for about 1-2 mins and then toss in your green beans. Sautee those for about 3 mins and then pour in the marsala wine.. give it a really good stir to scrape up all the yummy brown bits off the bottom of the pan, put the bacon back in the pan, and then clamp a lid on it and let it cook for 10 mins or so until the wine is completely absorbed. Voila! The husbands favorite veggie side. He asks for this often. :)
