Let’s Eat Outside! Piadine Romagnole with Italian Cured Ham and Creamy Cheese

Our last suggestion for a summer meal is the stuffed Piadina. It’s a typical and traditional flat bread of Romagna, the eastern area of the EmiliaRomagna region.  Usually this crispy bread is filled with every kind of delicacies like cured meat, fresh cheese, greens but also with sweet ingredients. Today we suggest to fill this Piadina  with Prosciutto Crudo (Cured Ham) and Crescenza or Stracchino, two creamy cheeses. For a tastier piadina, we suggest you to use Stracchino. Enjoy the sun and this delicious food!


INGREDIENTS for 4 servings

4 piadine romagnole
200 g good quality Italian Cured Ham, finely cut
250 g creamy cheese, like Crescenza, Stracchino or Crescione
8 lettuce leaves, washed

Warm up a flat-bottomed pan on medium heat for a few minutes. Place the piadina on top. After 2-3 minutes (or until warm) flip the piadina on its other side. Take the piadina  off the heat. Spread the cheese on the piadina, add the Prosciutto and 2 lettuce leaves. Fold the piadina into a half moon. Serve immediately.
