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

Recipe Ingredients for Sizzled Green Beans with Crispy Prosciutto

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
1/4 teaspoon pepper, to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest, freshly grated
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Sizzled Green Beans with Crispy Prosciutto

  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.

  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.

  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.
