1 shallot, finely chopped
1/2 to 3/4 pound fresh green beans
3 slices proscuitto, cut in 1/2 inch strips
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 cups chopped fresh tomato
3/4 cup chicken stock
3/4 cup white wine
1 teaspoon salt, pepper
juice of 1/2 lemon
3/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
1/2 cup chopped pistachio nuts
Wash beans, then cut in half
Place beans in a microwavable dish and cook slightly in the microwave about 2 minutes.
Place olive oil in a large saute pan heated to medium high. Add the shallots and prosciutto and saute about 3 minutes.
Place the partially cooked beans in the pan….
and the tomatoes…
Pour in the wine and chicken stock. Cook until the liquid is reduced in half, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Sprinkle gorgonzola cheese and pistachios over the top and serve!
