Steam the beans in a pot on the stove to a crisp texture- do not overcook. Drain and then return the beans to the pot.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium-low heat. Add the garlic and bell pepper and saute for 1 minute or until garlic releases its aroma. Add the almonds, prosciutto, basil and a splash of vermouth (or wine), stirring lightly.
Add the mixture to the beans and toss lightly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
You can usually find bags of green beans or Haricot Verts at Costco or your local grocery store (already trimmed).
If you are preparing this recipe as GLUTEN FREE, just be sure to use prosciutto that does not have any added gluten.
