Prosciutto wrapped green beans
Holidays are my favorite, but they can be so busy! I’ve been determined to to create side dishes that are easy, use simple ingredients, and don’t take long to cook. I know your oven is already crammed on the holidays, so let’s make these side dishes easy, shall we?!
These prosciutto wrapped green bean bundles are sprinkled with freshly grated parmesan cheese and rosemary, then wrapped tightly with salty prosciutto and baked. The prosciutto lightly crisps and the grease makes its way through all the nooks and crannies, delivering delicious flavor to all the green beans. It’s simple and incredible.
Since this side dish is so easy to make, it’s my favorite green bean recipe to bring to gatherings. It’s neat and tidy to plate on everyone’s plate and it compliments any meal. Literally the perfect green bean recipe. Ever.
Prosciutto wrapped green bean bundles
- Prosciutto– Cured, salty prosciutto is a very loved Italian staple. It can be found in most well stocked grocery stores.
- Green beans– You can use regular green beans or French green beans (haricots verts), whichever you prefer!
- Parmesan cheese- There is nothing better than freshly grated cheese! You can freshly grate a block of parmesan or you can buy store bought grated.
- Rosemary– Fresh rosemary is fragrant and complements
- the prosciutto and parmesan cheese so well! You can also use other fresh herbs like thyme, basil, or parsley.
- Olive oil– The green beans are lightly brushed with olive oil which helps the parmesan cheese stick to them better while they bake.
I am all about saving time in the kitchen! If you are on a time crunch, buy pre washed and cut green beans and grated parmesan cheese. This will save time since you won’t have to wash and cut the green beans, which can take quite a while.
