Prosciutto “Manicotti”

Once you read what’s in it (let alone how easy it is) you’ll agree that this CANNOT be bad! This idea came courtesy of one of my trainers Michelle when we were talking about how delicious manicotti was and how we could make a healthier version. My first thought was wrapping it in zucchini instead of pasta, then she said the magic word… PROSCIUTTO!

Told you – can’t be bad!


6 slices prosciutto

1/2 cup ricotta

1/4 cup shredded mozzarella or italian mix

2 tbsp shredded or grated parmesan

1 clove garlic, minced (or garlic powder)

1/2 cup kale (or spinach)

This couldn’t be easier. Mix all the ingredients (other than the prosciutto) in a bowl, then scoop about 2 tbsps of your mixture into each slice of prosciutto, roll them up, and put them in a baking dish! Bake at 350º for 25 minutes.
