Green Beans and Prosciutto Bundles

I got a great deal on some green beans at the Little Rock Farmers Market this past week, so I decided to try them with one of my favorite things ever: La Quercia prosciutto that you can find at Hillcrest Artisan Meats in Little Rock.  (H.A.M.)  The traditional method found here is prepared with bacon.  We'll call this version the no - bake method.  

Ingredients:
  • 1 pound of fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1/2 pound of thinly sliced La Quercia prosciutto
  • 1/2 stick of butter (real butter)
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar 
  • 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic
Directions:
  1. Start with a couple tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat.
  2. Add the green beans, tossing until tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining butter, brown sugar, and garlic.
  4. Stir well to dissolve and incorporate the flavors into the green beans.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Take 2 or 3 green beans, wrap with a half slice of prosciutto, and continue until all are gone.
  7. Serve as a side item or snack.
