Green Beans with Garlic, Prosciutto and Olives

Serves: 6

An exceptional twist on green beans.

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 12 min


1/2 ounce prosciutto or bacon, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound green beans, ends trimmed
1 1/2 tsps fresh rosemary, chopped
3/4 ripe pitted olives, cut in half longways
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
sea salt, to taste


Add prosciutto and garlic to hot oil in frying pan. Cook, stirring, just until prosciutto is crisp, (do not scorch), about 2 minutes. Quickly remove prosciutto and garlic from pan with slotted spoon and set aside. Add beans, 1/3 cup of water, and rosemary to pan. Cover and cook until beans are just tender to bite, about 5 minutes. Gently mix in olives. Cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer bean mixture to a serving bowl and sprinkle with prosciutto and garlic. Garnish with pepper to add to taste.
