Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook bean bundles for 2 minutes each side or until prosciutto is crisp. Transfer to a dish. Cover to keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic and chives to pan. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add cream. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Season with pepper. Drizzle over bean bundles. Serve.
