This is absolutely delicious, I can't leave well enough alone, so I brushed the mushroom caps with vinaigrette as well, and left the gills intact. I added the juice from them back into the vinaigrette. I also sauteed the prosciutto in a nonstick pan till a bit crispy. I served it to my oldest dearest friend, and she wanted the recipe, so it must be fabulous. Of course Country Lady, is a fabulous chef so what you would you expect?
