Prosciutto Wrapped Green Beans

Home ยป Prosciutto Wrapped Green Beans

Green beans don’t have to be complicated. A little butter, a little S&P and you’ve got something very tasty. If you want to take your special occasion to the next level, there’s no easier way than to wrap it in prosciutto. Prosciutto is a dry-cured ham popular in Italian cuisine. You can easily find it in most grocery stores. Sometimes I find it in the specialty cheese section, sometimes in the charcuterie section. It doesn’t need to be cooked, so it’s perfect for things like wrapped green beans.
