Pencil asparagus, blanched, lightly coated in olive oil that has been infused with minced garlic, then grilled. bundled in threes, wrapped in prosciutto and shaved parmesan over top!

Bake pieces of prosciutto until crispy.
While baking mix up a mango coulis
3/4 cup cubed peeled ripe mango

1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
Mix some ricotta with some oregano, rosemary and basil and grill some slices of mango.
Place a scoop of herb-ed ricotta on the plate and place a piece of prosciutto and a couple of grilled mango slices on top. drizzle with coulis

@ Jusnikki: Proscuitto di Parma - common here

It is very common to use Proscuitto di Parma in an array of uncountable recipes in Italy ... The wrapping of veal scallopine or chicken scallopine, tapas or meze; antipasto and wrapped around green melon; pizza toppings, in sandwiches; and in Ragł Bolognese tomato sauce to replace pancetta ... strips as garnish on cream soups too ...

Off top of my head.

The recipe posted with the fotos looks wonderful.

Have nice Sunday,
Margi.

One of my favorites is arancini stuffed with a cube of mozzarella, and incorporating chopped prosciutto into the rice mixture. Veal (when I can find it) saltimbocca. Antipasto with marinated artichokes, roasted red peppers, mushrooms, fresh mozzarella & a baguette to go with. A cross between mozzarella caruso & monte cristo sandwiches. Similar to a ham and cheese sandwich, but dipped in egg batter & fried. Prosciutto wrapped around a slice of watermelon with a slice of fontina or mozzarella, & drizzled with balsamic. Avocado and/or melon wrapped in prosciutto. Bread sticks or asparagus wrapped in prosciutto. Add prosciutto to your pasta carbonara dish with peas and mushrooms, or top penne pasta with tomato/vodka sauce w/ prosciutto.

Proscuitto wrapped around Melon ( Honeydew )

@ Cerise,

Thanks for ur post ...

I love Proscuitto, and can just eat it simple with a bread stick, however, I love it with melon, particularly with honey dew, or green melon or Persian melon, the very light beige yellow melon ...

yes, i use in carbonara of course

what else ?

I also love Iberian acorn fed Jabugo ham in Spain ... it is to die for.

Have nice evening.
Margi

I am a purist .........proscuitto, sliced ripe tomatoes, sliced fresh mozzie, large leaves of basil.

Put any combo on toasted garlic bread, dip in balsamic. Can't get much better that THAT!

For a change, the prosciutto wrapped around avocado slices rather than melon slices is good.

I believe I will have to go get some prosciutto and avocados to prove that it tastes good.

Thanks, Claire!
