A stylish Italian canapé that can be made in less than 30 minutes and combines the classic Italian flavours of rocket, prosciutto and Parmesan with sweet pear.



  • 2 ripe but firm pears, cored and halved
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 large handfuls rocket
  • 12 slices prosciutto
  • 30g parmesan or grana padano, shaved with a potato peeler
  • 24 toothpicks


  • STEP 1

    Cut each pear half into 4 long pieces, to make 16. You’ll need 12, so eat the rest. Combine the pears and lemon juice and season. Put a pear slice and a few leaves of rocket on each prosciutto slice.

  • STEP 2

    Add a shaving of parmesan, roll tightly and secure with 2 toothpicks. Roll all the others, then cut each in half in between the toothpicks.
