Sizzled Green Beans with Crispy Prosciutto & Pine Nuts

Sizzling green beans in a little oil helps to bring out their natural sweetness. Prosciutto, pine nuts and lemon zest dress up the flavor without adding a lot of fat - a nice alternative to full-fat, creamy green bean casseroles.

Serves 8

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 45 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced, cut into ribbons
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add beans, return to a boil, and simmer until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add prosciutto; cook, stirring, until crispy, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel.

Step 3

Wipe out the pan; heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Add the beans, garlic, sage, 1/8 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are browned in places, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in pine nuts, lemon zest and the prosciutto. Season with lemon juice, the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper.
