Sizzled Green Beans with Prosciutto

This is the best green bean recipe that I have ever tried! They were so delicious and the addition of lemon zest and prosciutto is divine. I did not have the fresh sage or pine nuts, so I used ground thyme. They still were delicious and my husband Anthony who really doesn't like green beans loved this recipe too. I look forward to the green beans coming back in season to make this wonderful dish. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

I found this recipe on a blog called Makeawhisk.com
