This quick recipe is perfect for impressing a dinner party. It is combination of the goat cheese stuffed tomatoe receipe by Nano2 #64641 and a little love fo' my Iowa-born, ham lovin' madre and grandmadre. Do not be intimidated by the ingredients. Prosciutto will cost $3.50 at the deli counter - no more than a tank of gas or a mocha. Make sure to ask that they shred it (extra thin slicing) and you'll swear it looks like a pound. Possible variations: cream cheese for the goat cheese; a 1/8 pound ham & 1/8 pound salami for proscuitto though I have tried neither.

Directions

  1. Chop up the sage and garlic. Chop the stems off the sage and use only the leaves.
  2. Flip the tomatoes so the stem side is the bottom. Cut the tops off of tomatoes and scoop out the inside with a spoon. (Save the tops for presentation later, if desired).
  3. Put oil in pan and sautee the chopped garlic for about 30 seconds on a medium to high heat. Add sage and 75% of the proscuitto to the pan and mix ingredients on high for 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  4. Add pan mixture and the goat cheese to a food processor. Chop until ingredients are mixed together, should be a dip-like texture.
  5. Stuff tomatoes with mixture and top with parmesean.
  6. Broil tomatoes until the tops are brown. Top with proscuitto or serve the rest of the proscuitto on the side.
