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.

2 pounds  green beans trimmed
2 1/2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil divided
2 ounces  prosciutto thinly sliced, cut into ribbons

1/4 teaspoon  salt divided
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup  toasted pine nuts
1 1/2 teaspoons  freshly grated lemon zest

Tip: To toast chopped nuts & seeds: Cook in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
Sizzled Green Beans with Crispy Prosciutto & Pine Nuts Recipe at
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.

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.

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.

Great for quick dinner at home
My husband and I love to host small dinners about twice a week. I found this recipe when I was looking for something to do with a pound of fresh green beans I had. I didn't have pine nuts so I used chopped walnuts. I toasted them first. The taste of lemon with the extra virgin olive oil was fantastic. We all went back for seconds!
