A side dish that is as delicious as it is versatile, green beans and prosciutto is a savory flavor marriage that works with nearly any main dish you’re serving. Cut prep time in half—and use fewer dishes—by crisping prosciutto in your microwave.

How to Make It

Preheat broiler to high. Place prosciutto slices between paper towels; microwave at HIGH 1 1/2 minutes or until crisp. Break into pieces. Place olive oil, chopped fresh thyme, and haricots verts on a baking sheet; toss. Broil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place bean mixture on a platter; top with prosciutto, almonds, fresh thyme leaves, pepper, and salt.
