This recipe is a hit with my friends and their families. I've made it so many times I don't even have to think about it anymore.

* It can be made without the prosciutto for a vegetarian dish.

** Bacon, ham, smoked sausage, pepperoni may be used in place of prosciutto.

*** Make ahead and serve cold as a side dish.

How to Make Olive Mac 'N Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. heat a large skillet, add 2 Tbsp olive oil. when oil is warm add butter to melt.
  2. add garlic and saute until it melts into the oil and butter then add prosciutto and saute until it starts to curl around the edges like bacon. add salt and pepper to taste (remember the olives and prosciutto are already salty)
  3. add green olives and toss in the garlic and prosciutto. Now add the drained cannelini beans and toss to coat with the garlic mixture.
