Servings: 6


  • 3 slices Parma prosciutto
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds Blue Lake green beans, stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  2. Separate prosciutto slices and lay flat on a cooling rack over a baking sheet pan. Bake until crisp, about 10 minutes. Let cool on rack. Crumble into bite-size pieces. Set aside.
  3. Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook, approximately 2-3 minutes or until just tender. Remove beans with a slotted spoon and place in an ice water bath to cool. Drain beans into a colander.
  4. In a large heavy-bottomed sauté pan over medium heat, sauté the shallot in the olive oil until translucent. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Toss beans with crispy prosciutto, season with salt and pepper and serve.

      I like veggies. This is another way for me to try green beans with. Should be good. Thanks!
