Season fillet with salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in medium saute pan, sear for 1 minute on each side, remove from pan. Saute arugula and shallots lightly in same pan. Add pancetta and brown. Drain fat and saute garlic, chive, navy beans, black beans, and 2 oz. of the tomato sauce for 5-10 minutes. Stir in parsley and lemon zest. Salt and pepper to taste.
Cut Athens® Ready-To-Go Phyllo Dough widthwise into four strips. Place fillet at one end of Phyllo, top with truffles and arugula mixture and roll like a burrito. Repeat 3 more times. Score each burrito into 3 equal sections, brush with olive oil to seal. Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Slice burritos and arrange on top of beans.
