I am always looking for new ways to prepare green beans. This is really easy and the prosciutto is a nice compliment to the beans. I used canned green beans instead of fresh. Thanks for sharing, Kari!!!

I used good ol' bacon since that's what I had on hand and it came out delicious. Thank you for sharing.
