  • Servings: Makes 2 dozen rolls


  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds (2 ounces)
  • One 6.5-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and patted dry
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 18 thin slices of prosciutto (about 7 ounces)

How to make this recipe

  1. Heat the oil in a small skillet. Add the almonds and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool.

  2. In a mini food processor, pulse the artichoke hearts with the almonds until finely chopped. Add the cream cheese, Parmesan and lemon zest and process to a paste. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Lay 3 prosciutto slices on a work surface, overlapping them slightly along the sides. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the artichoke filling onto the short end and roll into a tight cylinder. Repeat with the remaining prosciutto and filling. Trim the ends, cut into quarters and serve.

Make Ahead

The rolls can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.
