My interpretation of a Nigella Lawson recipe as shown on her "Nigella Express" series.

These were good, I loved the prosciutto in them over regular ham. In fact it gave such a nice flavor I don't think I will ever use regular ham in my quesadillas again. I did leave the onions and jalepenos out to make it more kid friendly. So we had them with the prosciutto, shredded cheddar cheese and dipped them in salsa. Thanks, I will make this one again!
