    Served this meal to my family of 3 adults yesterday. We rate every new recipe on a scale of 1-10. This one got a 7 from each of us. I suspect that if I had added more proscuitto, it would have gotten a higher score and will keep this recipe for future meals in my rotation of recipes. It is a quick, easy recipe which goes a long way with me!
