I picked up some beautiful gigante beans at the Grand Central Market yesterday and came up with this delicious recipe that incorporated baby spinach that I had on hand. I used baby spinach, but you may use any type of spinach that you prefer.

  • 6 Garlic Cloves (Minced)
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Cups Gigante Beans Or Large White Lima Beans

  • 4 Slices Prosciutto (Chopped)
