I’m a big fan of this dish as its looks fancy, but there really is very little skill required. While it takes an hour to make, its not intense work and the cleaning up, is very minimal. I purposely create meals where there is just one pan or tray to wash by hand and this recipe does just that.
I find tomatoes, basil and olives are a perfect flavour combination, and surprisingly with a dash of balsamic vinegar the flavour just intensifies even further. If you are intolerant to dairy like I am, I make my own basil pesto, which is dairy free. Health food stores will often have these ready-made as well if you simply don’t have the time. I don’t add any seasoning as the olives and prosciutto provide just the right amount of salty taste.
