absolutely delicious and easy to make. comes out moist and tender. i added prosciutto instead of ham, and crushed fresh garlic. i also used extra virgin olive oil instead of butter for the coating.

Delicious! I halved the recipe for just the two of us and I added some monterey jack cheese in the middle with the ham and fresh basil. Turned out great! Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)
