Had a dish similar to this in a local restaurant and decided to improvise. It is absolutely delicious, though not diet food. Great with fresh Italian rolls and a salad.

I fully intended on taking photos of this, but my mouth was watering and all I could do was eat it! No time for pictures! This was amazing! I love it. First time for prosciutto and fontina, but man will I be using those again. Thanks for the great recipe!
