Dietician's Tip: Prosciutto is a seasoned Italian ham that has less fat and fewer calories than bacon. If you don't have prosciutto, you can use smoked turkey instead.


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 ounces prosciutto, cut into thin strips (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels (cut from about 4 medium ears of corn) or frozen corn
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded, cored and diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the prosciutto and saute until the meat is crisp, about 5 minutes. Stir in the corn, bell pepper and garlic. Saute, stirring occasionally, until the kernels are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve immediately.
