Prep: 3 minutes; Cook: 12 minutes. Prosciutto is Italian-style ham that has been seasoned, salt-cured (not smoked), and air-dried. After it's dried, the meat is pressed, so it has a firm, dense texture. Prosciutto is a little pricey, but the flavor it adds is worth it. If you can't find it, you can substitute lean ham.
