Instructions

Bend the asparagus to break off the tender parts. Discard the tougher ends. Chop the tender asparagus parts and the green beans into small pieces (each one just a bit bigger than a Tylenol). Chop the green onions into small pieces (the part between the white and "green" green). Chop the garlic into small pieces. Saute Saute the prosciutto in a minimal amount of olive oil until it is crispy. Then, remove from the pan. I put it on a plate with a paper towel to soak up any excess oil. Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for a few minutes. Then add the asparagus and cook for 10 minutes. (I cook a lot longer because I like Southern style veggies that are soft.) Add a sprinkle of salt while cooking. When done, add the prosciutto back into the pan until it is warmed up. Top with Parmesan cheese. Cover for a minute so the cheese melts a bit, and then serve immediately.
