  • A little effort

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.



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


  • 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.
