Fresh take on green veges..

5 Oct

I am always looking for a twist on the usual suspects. I am referring to green vegetables. To avoid boredom try the recipe below, it is quick and tastes great.

We love sugar snap peas, a little  sweet and very few carbs.  Best of all they have that crunch factor I love.  An 8 oz bag of sugar snap peas has 10 net carbs.  We usually only have half a bag for two people so that is 2.5 net carbs each.

This week I sautéed some chopped prosciutto in a little olive oil until it was lightly browned and then removed it from the pan. In the same pan, add 1-2 T of olive oil and saute the peas over medium heat until heated through, about 8 minutes. Toss with the  browned prosciutto and serve. Salt and Pepper to taste.  If you want them a bit softer at the end, take pan off the heat and cover with a lid for a couple minutes and let them steam a bit.
