Low Carb Pancetta Sprouts

Low Carb Pancetta SproutsLow Carb Pancetta SproutsLow Carb Pancetta Sprouts.  I have a friend whose birthday is the same day as mine and as a treat, I took her to The LaurelHurst Market for dinner.  Along with the birthday stuff they gave me, I also purchased ¼ lb of pancetta and some of their Chicken Liver Paté.  I think mine is better but theirs was just starring me in the face, begging me to buy some…so I did.  The paté and birthday bacon are long gone but I stuck the pancetta in the freezer.  I pretty much always have boiled mung bean sprouts in the fridge as I eat them in different ways as a side dish 3-4 times a week.  So just to do something a little differently I decided to do a pot-load of garlic with my pancetta and some of the sprouts.  Wow was it good.  It was so good, I decided to post a recipe with it.  Here are some of the other things I do with sprouts and these do not count the sauces I put on them or adding to salads.  Puttanesca Over Mung Bean SproutsMung Bean Sprouts Carbonara, and Chicken Parmesan Over Sprouts.  Sprouts are a terrific substitute for high carby pasta and can be used in most any of your pasta recipes, and the most ridiculous part of all this is that the recipe has a measly three ingredients.  Yup, that’s just three. Actually, four If you count the pepper.

With all that said, if you can’t find pancetta, bacon makes a good stand-in so don’t not make this because you can’t find or get pancetta.
