Lemony Green Beans

Mmmm....fresh green beans.  So good!  They taste so good as a side dish to just about anything.  We had these ones for our Easter dinner this year.
Green beans, trimmed edges
1 shallot, chopped finely
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2tsp. lemon juice (depending on how lemony you like them)
Salt and pepper to taste
2 slices bacon, cooked and chopped (optional)

Blanch green beans in boiling water for just a few minutes to soften up, rinse in cool water.  Heat a Tbsp. olive oil in skillet and add shallot.  Cook for a minute or two.  Add green beans, garlic, bacon (if desired), salt, pepper, and lemon juice.  Cook until beans are heated through.
