Pancetta is an Italian cured marbled bacon. If you can't find Pancetta, use country bacon slices.
Cook the pancetta until just brown. Add the onion and garlic and cook until just soft.
Toss in the beans and cook for 1 minute.
Add the water or broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer 20 minutes.
