    I baked these on a sheet pan so they would have more room and topped with the parmesan after they were cooked. The prosciutto didn't totally get crispy, so next time I will roast these in olive oil and top them with Recipe #239502.

    Lazyme, Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful idea for zucchini appetizers, it's fabulous! I did not pre-ccok the zucc., I tossed the spears in olive oil and dusted them with an Italian herbed seasoning blend, sprinkled on some Parmesan, and wrapped them in proscuitto then popped them under the broiler for a few minutes. Voila! Perfect little summer bites with a glass of wine. I will share this with all my friends since all of us have squash coming out of our ears this time of year. **This was saved in my Top 2008 Recipes Cookbook!
