Makes 2 dozen rolls


+ Add To Shopping List
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds (2 ounces)
One 6.5-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and patted dry
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
Salt and freshly ground pepper
18 thin slices of prosciutto (about 7 ounces)


1. Heat the oil in a small skillet. Add the almonds and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool.

2. In a mini food processor, pulse the artichoke hearts with the almonds until finely chopped. Add the cream cheese, Parmesan and lemon zest and process to a paste. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Lay 3 prosciutto slices on a work surface, overlapping them slightly along the sides. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the artichoke filling onto the short end and roll into a tight cylinder. Repeat with the remaining prosciutto and filling. Trim the ends, cut into quarters and serve.

Make Ahead: The rolls can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
