I meant to post this recipe pre-Easter, but I didn’t. While this would have been a great addition to your Easter table, it will also be a great addition to any meal. Crisp tender green beans, crunchy bits of prosciutto and tangy gorgonzola cheese combine quickly but still manage to feel special. I love these served alongside grilled chicken.


Crispy Prosciutto & Gorgonzola Green Beans

4-6 servings


16 oz trimmed green beans (fresh or frozen)

4 slices of prosciutto

1/2 c crumbled gorgonzola cheese

1 Tbls olive oil

1 Tbls honey

Freshly ground black pepper- to taste


1. Crisp prosciutto on cookie sheet in 400° oven. This takes about 3-5 minutes. Remove from oven & let cool.

2.Add olive oil to large skillet & heat.

3. Add green beans to skillet & cook until “crisp tender” or desired doneness.

4. Meanwhile, crumble prosciutto into bowl. Once beans are cooked, add to bowl. Add half of the cheese, honey and pepper. Toss to combine. Top with the remaining half of the cheese before serving.

5. Enjoy!
